The 28-year-old Irish man who bought a dog on Facebook before strangling the dog, cooking the dog meat and then feeding the dog to another dog, has been jailed for two additional years, reports Sky News. The cruel dog-killer, Dominic O’Connor, of County Down, was also given a lifetime ban for owning animals by Judge Piers Grant, who called O’Connor’s behavior “disgraceful” and “heinous.”
O’Connor’s victim was a four-year-old border collie named Jess. The dog was strangled before being cut up and cooked – O’Connor fed the meat from Jess to his other dog, Shadow, last December.
The Judge commented on the cruelty of O’Connor’s actions, “It is appropriate to recognise that the level of cruelty inflicted on this poor animal is very much at the upper end of the spectrum for this type of offending.” O’Connor showed no remorse for killing Jess and he nearly two dozen previous (and not related) convictions which indicate his propensity to act “irresponsibly.”

Did you know that if you want to get updates from a Facebook page, you need to do more than “like” it? To get recent postings in your Facebook feed, you must also hover your mouse over the word “following” and then click “see first” from the drop-down menu. You may want to check back with your favorite pages on occasion because Facebook often changes your settings, no longer having your favorites among those to “see first.”
