Owner who threw puppy breaking his ribs receives slap on the wrists

The ruthless pet owner living in Bracknell, Berks, who threw his Labrador retriever puppy so hard breaking the dog’s ribs, was not sentenced to jail  on Friday. According to animal advocates, the man received no more than a slap on the wrists with a moderate fine.

According to  ITV News, Joe Easter, 27, received a two-year community order, was fined $3800 and ordered to pay $423 in costs to the RSPCA after the attack on a 12-week-old puppy named Charlie. Easter admitted to losing his temper and repeatedly slamming the puppy against a wall incurring six broken ribs, a swollen face, bloodshot eyes along with signs of having been strangled.

The disturbing situation occurred in August 2017 after an anonymous caller told authorities he had seen the puppy being abused and slammed against the wall of a public part of the apartment building where Easter lived. When officers arrived, they found Charlie barely able to breathe. Radiographs revealed the severity of the dog’s injuries.

Originally Easter told RSPCA officials the puppy had been accidentally caught in the door, but eventually admitted to having had lost his temper and abused the dog.

Charlie has since recovered and has been placed with a new family in Surrey.

The good news is Easter has been banned from owning or keeping any animals for the next ten years.

    Yep, slap on the wrist! If and when judges will do their jobs the world MIGHT be a better place! Glad Charlie recuperated and is with a new family.

    His punishment should have been the same he gave this pup and then jail time. Nothing more than a slap on the wrist and can’t own a pet for 10 years. Sure he won’t have his hands on someone else’s pet.

    The Courts all over the world hold that animals are mere property, nothing more. Their pain and suffering are non-existent, their lives mean nothing to the law. Until we change that perception, monsters like this man will get away with their depraved, sadistic, cowardly behavior.

      This should be a mandatory prison sentence for at least 20 years with no possibility of parole and a lifetime ban from any contact with animals or children!
