Dog owner accused of cruelty

 

Man chained 'skeletal' pitbull to ceiling

A positive outcome in court on Thursday, July 13, 2017 for the Bermuda SPCA. 
We are sending out the message that cruelty will not be tolerated in Bermuda and neglecting to seek veterinary attention when your animal is sick or injured is not acceptable.

Kevin Degenhard wrote: 

"Having read many of the comments which maintain this is not a positive result I can empathize with the call for more robust penalties but we should all compliment the Bermuda SPCA for overcoming all the obstacles usually involved getting such a case to court. A disqualification order is positive though we could all argue about its duration. Unless we were in court to hear all the litigation arguments we won't know how this sentence was arrived at. 

All the critics should do something positive and support the Bermuda SPCA."

 

Thank you Chris, Ben, Dr. Madeiros and all involved with helping with this case.
