Man who admitted to killing dog sentenced to just 4 days in jail

PicMonkey Collage

A Billings, Montana, man who admitted to killing another family’s dog with a cane, will spend just four days in jail for his crime, reported Monday’s KVTQ News. The dog killer, identified as 21-year-old  Anthony “A.J.” James Allen, killed a small, white mixed breed dog, “Joker” in an apparent fit of anger.

Witnesses told the authorities that Allen “was yelling and cussing and had killed the dog.” Allen kicked Joker and struck him multiple times with a cane – the dog died on Sunday at Allen’s mother’s house.

Allen was arrested and taken to Yellowstone County Jail – he was charged with a misdemeanor cruelty to animals charge and sentenced to just four days in jail and anger management class. In addition to the short jail time, Allen was instructed to stay away from animals.

Individuals who have learned about Allen’s crime have expressed dismay and outrage that he faced only a misdemeanor charge and short jail time for killing a dog in such a brutal fashion.

    I wonder how his Neighbor feels that he just got 4 days for killing their little dog. This is hardly justice, I would like to wipe the smug look off his face and kick his butt into jail for a good long time. I doubt very much that anger management classes, $1000 restitution, four days in jail, and cannot be around animals will have much of an effect on him, someone dropped the ball big time!

    Animal killers and abusers receive ridiculously light sentences because unfortunately most judges do not realize that animal abuse is a symptom of a much larger problem and possibly a mental disorder. We’ll be hearing more from this dog killer, I can assure you. Only the next time, he will have harmed a child.

    Why bother leaving any reply to any case of animal abuse? They all carry “slap on the wrist” punishments, and it continues everywhere, over and over and over. Death penalty to Anthony Allen, psycho, murderer.

    Animals are family and deserve much better. It should be a felony to deliberately kill a family pet, and even worse was he admitted to it. If you will do that to an animal you will do it to a person

    Only 4 years you’ve got to be kidding me. Is that judge an asshole? Obviously yes. Now what if it happened to his dog, I’m sure that guy wouldn’t see the light of day again. What does 4 days do? Absolutely nothing!!! Animal abuse laws MUST HAVE SERIOUS LAWS. NOT THIS 4 DAY BULLSHIT

    This was another family’s dog….seriously! This guy is a serial killer in the making. What happened to animal cruelty being a felony charge! That judge is a disgrace. I bet if it was his dog he would have sentenced him a lot differently!

    I was at the rally for Joker. He did this because Joker was protecting a child he was “being rough” with. Did this in front of 5 children and threatened to kill another dog if they told. Media don’t tell you everything. Rumor has it, he’s hit a dog before in different city.

    That is one dangerous man. This is a pathetic, disgusting display of NO JUSTICE and we can be sure this man will– in a “rage”– hurt animals and people, too. NO ONE who is even remotely sane becomes so enraged that they beat an innocent animal to death. Anger management? hahahaha!! What a freakin’ joke. Just wait. He’ll be back in the news eventually. Genuine psychopath.
