A 14-year-old boy kicked and punched to death a family's beloved pet dog after losing his temper, a court was told.
The teenager launched the savage assault on the Staffordshire bull terrier in St Ives, Cornwall, in October of last year, reports Cornwall Live .St Ives! Good grief! I didn't think neanderthal chavs went there.
The defendant, who can't be named, is said to have become irate after the dog, called Teddy, pinned down his own dog.I know what you're thinking. "Well, he was just protecting his own dog!"
District Judge Diana Baker warned the teenager would be going straight down those steps to custody if he was an adult.So you've pretty much told him he won't be! Good going, love.
RSCPA prosecutor Kevin Withey described how the attack was witnessed by many people on a residential street, traumatising those who saw it.And no-one intervened?
He pointed out that despite common perceptions regarding staffies, Teddy was a good natured dog and the boy’s dog the aggressor.What a lovely family.
