Neighbors feel that the attack lasted “forever” and Diesel’s dying whimpers were the most distressing thing they’ve ever heard. Let’s spread the word and demand this brute’s arrest.
Update: Gwent police officers have arrested Matthew for the violent attack on his defenseless dog. Andrew Twomlow, Matthew’s defense attorney, filed a single guilty plea of “causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal”. Matthew claims that he only hit Diesel 6-7 times, and blames his actions on “stress”.
The judge who heard Matthew’s case called it a “cowardly and vicious attack” where he showed “no empathy” toward the animal.
Matthew has now been sentenced to 17 weeks in prison and banned from keeping animals for life. However, animal activists are campaigning for a maximum sentence of 5 years for this heinous abuse. Let’s raise our voices and demand the strictest punishment for this brute.
