Apparently a Maryland judge feels that the best punishment a convicted animal abuser can receive is to work at a shelter for 100 hours. The same man who thought it was ok to duct tape his dog’s mouth to keep it from biting. So what will this man do when faced with potentially aggressive dogs at the shelter those who are upset about their current situation? I don’t see how this is supposed to do anything other then possibly putting other dogs at risk ones who need compassion and love.
The convicted man was originally sentenced to two 90 day jail terms received a suspended sentence to instead be working with at risk animals. The man is also being required to repay the animal hospital that treated his dog in the amount of $1,400.
