Don’t they screen these people? Such a sad story! I hope they sentence this monster appropriately. Although I’m not sure what would be appropriate – maybe let him live in a cage and get held in a choke-hold every once in awhile?
Two other employees pled guilty to animal cruelty charges last year. Archie Elliot III was sentenced to two years in prison, while Frank Lightfoot was sentenced to just 20 days. Charges were dismissed against the former director of the shelter and his administrative assistant. The shelter’s veterinarian was acquitted.
The Examiner has been following the story from the beginning.
I’ll try and update you as to the sentencing when it is held.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
