An 18-year-old Columbiana, Ohio teen cried after the man who owned the turkey killed addressed the court before sentencing on Thursday. Drew Browne pleaded guilty to animal cruelty after he was captured on video beating the turkey to death with an ax handle.
According to WfmjNews, the owner of the turkey Matt Henderson stated the turkey had been a family pet and Henderson’s wife was heartbroken when they discovered what happened. Henderson asked why he tortured and killed a defenseless animal and worries that this terrible deed might be a terrible foreshadowing to abusing a girlfriend or a wife.
The graphic video showed Browne beating the turkey with the ax handle at least 18 times. Another voice could be heard, “Hit it Drew!” Karissa Piszczek faces charges of recording the incident and is scheduled to appear in court next week.
Browne was sentenced to 60 days in jail, two years of probation and 120 hours of a mandatory community service at an area animal shelter.
If you see animal cruelty, report it. Don’t let punks like this get away with horrible animal abuse.
