Dog torturer receives exemplary prison sentence

Dog torturer receives exemplary prison sentence

Mis à jour le 09 March 2018

Justice has been served for "Justice," the aptly named dog who was discovered tied up and abandoned to die. The judge ruled that the culprit be registered in a DNA database for criminals, based on the conviction that a strong link exists between violence against animals and humans.

Rescued in the nick of time

At the back of a shopping center in Windsor, Ontario (Canada), a small dog, approximately seven years old, was left for dead. His snout was tightly bound with tape, along with his legs and neck. Luckily, a passerby spotted him, saving him from suffocation. When he was released, he was so weak that he could barely stand upright. Fortunately, the local organization Windsor/Essex County Humane Society was able to care for him during his recovery.

An exemplary judgment

Once the culprit was found during the investigation, a lawsuit ensued. The judge who handled the case condemned the offender to the maximum sentence: two years in prison and three years probation, along with a twenty-five year ban on owning animals. Additionally, he ordered that the animal torturer be registered in the national DNA database: it is widely known that criminals often start off as animal abusers.

And in France?

Abusive individuals target animals and humans alike, showing a lack of respect for all life, regardless of species. There is no exception to this rule in France: in Griffin's Griffin's case, the offender both hit his girlfriend and set her cat on fire.

Currently, convicted or suspected criminals are registered in a national DNA database (FNAEG) managed by the Ministry of Justice. One Voice has insisted that the Minister of Justice include animal abusers in these records in order to prevent crimes against people.

il est GRAND temps que les animaux soient considérés comme des êtres vivants et leurs tortionnaires punis à la hauteur de la faute!

Généralement les gens violents avec les animaux le sont avec les gens.
