A disgusting creep from North Shields, Newcastle, United Kingdom, who admitted biting his puppy in the face inflicting serious and painful injuries to his eight-month-old puppy, while “stoned” on marijuana, was given an 11-week prison sentence, suspended for 18 months.
On Tuesday, Tyler Laverick, 20, admitted he bit the Staffordshire bull terrier named Diesel in the nose because he was “stoned” in October 2017. All of the skin was ripped away from the pup’s nose along with numerous other injuries. According to the Chronicle Live, in addition, the puppy’s left side of his jaw was swollen, there was bleeding in the whites of his eyes, scratches and wounds on his ears and multiple wounds and scars to his front legs. A veterinarian, performing the examination on the dog, concluded the wounds to his head had been consistent with blunt force trauma, and the injuries to his nose and ears were caused from bites.
Laverick had been previously convicted in his absence in April, but claimed he didn’t know anything about his court appearance since he had been in the hospital for mental health issues. Besides the suspended sentence, Laverick was fined and has been banned from having any pets for the next ten years.
Diesel has since recovered and has been rehomed.
