Dog basher jailed for three months

A man who bashed a dog with a pole and suspended it on a clothesline has been jailed for offences.

Hally Jade James French, 21, pleaded guilty to ill treatment of an animal and causing serious harm.

The heard he used a pole to repeatedly hit a Jack Russell cross named Buddy, then put the dog on a clothesline and struck it again.

The court was told a neighbour heard the dog yelping and saw the attack from over the fence.

When police and RSPCA inspectors arrived the dog was lying motionless in a pool of blood and was taken to an emergency vet clinic in a critical condition.

The dog suffered rib fractures and head as well as shock and stress, but made a full recovery.

The court heard French suffered as a result of his disadvantaged and traumatic childhood, and could not cope with the dog when it was in his care.

Magistrate Paul Foley imposed a three-month jail sentence for the violent crimes.

“This serious offending involved violence towards a defenceless animal who you were charged with looking after at the time,” Magistrate Foley said.

“While I have sympathy for your position I take the view that on this occasion there is no basis for me to suspend that term of imprisonment. I will require you to serve that sentence.”

He also revoked a three-month suspended sentence for an assault on a taxi driver, as French had breached a good behaviour bond for that offence by committing the animal cruelty crimes.

He was therefore ordered to spend a total of six imprisonment.

    Well, the logical, rational answer is that God had nothing to do with the child being born with Down’s Syndrome.

    There is a strong, strong urge – nay, a NEED – in human beings to find a “reason” for everything that happens, both good and bad; the hardest thing to accept, it seems, is that sometimes there IS no reason… sometimes things just happen. Period.
