I read the link and it stated that the man hit the rat terrier on the head with a golf club causing massive brain injury and rendering the dog unconcious immediately. The dog had to be put down. According to the article he only hit the dog once. I'm not condoning this horrendous act but he didn't "beat him to death" as in striking him many times causing the dog a lot of pain. I guess we can be thankful for that much.

The part that really broke my heart was that the scumbag was ticketed. TICKETED?? THAT'S IT?? The justice system in this country needs to be corrected. Far too many crimes against children and animals, the most helpless of all, are punished by no more than a slap on the wrist and a ticket. Give me a break.
AND...... if it will make you feel better take a look at this guy, we need more like him.

Though I can't stand the abuse of animal, I have to say I was sited because some neighbor complained about my dog barking. Even thought there were other neighbors who came to my defence, I was given a ticket. I never found out who was that that complained, my dog never barked he was the sweetest thing in the world. I don't know what I would have done done if in fact he (the dog) would bark and would not stop. I would never do what that man did, but he was sorry. So give him a break.

See, the whole barking thing irks me too. Dogs bark, that is what they do and how they communicate. If you don't like barking, don't get a dog. Now for the neighbors having to put of with a barking dog all night, I can understand their plight and I feel that the owners/neighbors need to work to gether to find a HUMANE solution. (NO SHOCK COLLARS!!!)

Anyhow, I think it is funny they give you a ticket for the barking dog. I guess it would be one thing if you were out there barking all night. This backwards world we live in!!!

Ok... so I lose my mind for a second then whack my dog on the head and kill him. And I am remoresful. What if that had been a child???

I don't condemn him nor judge him, but I do feel that folks that will inflict harm on a dog or any animal just may have the tendency to do it to a person.

I agree that a ticket really does not send a message. It just covers up a bigger issue. Anyhow, CharlieD, not picking on you nor am I trying to be argumentative.

Give him a break? Are you kidding me? He hit the dog on the head with a golf club hard enough to cause serious brain injury, so serious that the dog had to be put down. I AM condemning him. His temper is WAY out of control and he should have been given more than a ticket. I owned and trained 4 dogs and never laid a hand on any of them. EVER! There are ways of making a dog stop barking without crushing it's skull.

Absolutely true Sattie-provided that person is weak, defensless or otherwise unable to defend themselves. I can almost assure this is not the type of guy who will pick a fight with the biggest guy in the room. But, this is a free and open forum, and everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. But I cannot for the life of me think of any scenario that justifies this kind of brutality.

I proudly condemn him and only wish I were the judge at his trial.

After you done your share, let me borrow it. I wouldn't even clean it before I took aim.

I AM certainly grateful they are identifying these creeps and t hat they are letting the public know what these poor animals have to go through. I wouldn't even want to waste my time to help him go through some kind of therapy. What I would like t o know is why did he have the dog in the first place? A dog has a life and how he tries to live it with someone who can't handle his own feelings should not be allowed to own anything, car, house, child, wife, He should be put out to pasture so he could fend for himself and see if someone would consider adopting him with his kind of behavior? I am grateful you shared this story with us. Hopefully future dog owners will take note and control themselves. Rather than using on the dog, hit themselves first and he will be able to not hear the dog barking. Poor dog, didn't deserve this! Imagine what he must have thoughts when the guy took aim at him? I am getting myself worked up about some creep who isn't worth the scum of my shoes as you said.

Only my opinion. Thanks for allowing me to say my piece. May the dog rest in peace.
