There is nothing good to be said about people who hurt animals, and now there is a petition to try and stop them from ever owning a pet again.
It emerged this week that a little chihuahua called Chunky had been tortured by four teenagers, before being left for dead next tosome bins at the side of the road.
He was found with a broken leg, neck, a burnt face and eyes and had even been force-fed drugs by the teens, who had tortured the poor pup over a number of hours, apparently for their own “amusement”…
The RSPCA officer dealing with the case said:
“This was the most disturbing case I have ever dealt with, by an absolute mile. These youths admitted feeding him drugs, kicking and punching him, and wringing and breaking his neck before dumping him. They also said they set fire to his face and eyes after lighting a deodorant aerosol can. The whole thing sends shivers down my spine.”
Chunky made a miraculous recovery and is happy with a new family (above).
Shockingly though, the boys were only banned from owning an animal for five years. Yes, five years before they could potentially find another dog to have “fun” with.
So one dog-lover, and just generally sane person, Maxine Berry has set up a petition asking David Cameron to permanently ban people who abuse animals. Which, when you think about it, makes crystal clear sense…
