Man left dog to starve to death

Dog dead after owner left him to starve to death inside of house

A dog is dead after his owner left him unattended inside of a house for two months. The man behind the cruel incident is 27-year-old Kyle Springer of New Brunswick. As reported by CBC News, Springer pleaded guilty to the resulting charge of criminal animal cruelty on Tuesday – he will learn his fate when he is sentenced in the spring.

The crime

In 2015, the abandoned dog, named Diesel, was found by Springer’s landlord, who was trying to collect rent. The interior of the residence was covered in urine and feces and there was evidence that the dog had desperately tried to find food and/or escape. It is believed that the abandoned dog died approximately three days before the landlord entered the building.

The landlord’s daughter stated that Springer lied about the dog – claiming that someone was taking care of him, but the truth is that the dog was abandoned and left to suffer an agonizing, slow death by starvation.

An arrest warrant was issued for Springer two years ago after he failed to appear in court – he was recently arrested following a tip.

The punishment

Thousands of people have signed a petition asking for Springer to be given the maximum sentence of 18 months in jail for his crime – the decision about the man’s punishment will be made on April 9.

    This is pure evil…… callous, cruel indifference to living beings (in this case a dog, who knows who could be the next victim, a child, elderly relative)……

    This POS should only leave prison in a pine box. He is clearly a psychopath.

    SMH: I don’t understand how anyone could abandon a furbaby…… my family always had animals and they were with us from their adoption or rescue until they left this Earth for Heaven…..

    I truly believe that anyone who is deliberately cruel to others (people or animals) will burn in Hell forever for their cruelty…..

    Precious treasure, your life was stolen from you (& your life mattered). I am absolutely heartbroken for your trauma & death.

    Please look for MacKitty in Heaven and he will welcome you into his snuggle buddies group. You can RIP amongst his loving friends……..

    This scum should be left in a cage with no food or water and slowly watch him die. That would the justice this poor dog should get in return for his slow, agonizing death. Eye for an eye punishment. Courts are getting many of these cases right but not enough or longer punishment time. Let these scum know and feel what that pet went through.

    When will the courts realize that these animal abusers are the same scum that are commuting most other crimes as well and need stiff sentences and mental health evaluations. Obviously this “person” is severely impaired.
