In Aubin Grove, Australia, the owner of a Rottweiler puppy was banned from owning or being in contact with dogs for the next three years after deliberately kneeing the three-month-old puppy numerous times breaking her ribs.
The man was charged with animal cruelty against the puppy named Sasha in violation of Sections 19(1) and 19(2)(a) of the Animal Welfare Act 2002. The incident occurred in August 2020 when WA Police arrived at the man’s home to execute a search warrant for drugs. During the raid, the hard drive of his computer was seized, and a video of the man abusing the puppy led to a cruelty report.
The video footage showed the offender carrying the black and tan puppy by the neck and midsection. As he walked in front of a parked car, he kneed the dog hard three times. During the interview with authorities, the man admitted to slapping Sasha, but denied beating and abusing her. When the inspector offered up the video where the man could be seen abusing the dog, the offender stated he didn’t remember.
In addition to being banned from owning or being in the company of dogs for the next three years, the dog’s owner was also fined $2,500 and ordered to pay court costs and veterinarian treatments.
Sasha was seized and taken to the RSPCA’s Animal Care Centre in Malaga where veterinarians found evidence of recent rib fractures. Sasha remains at the shelter.
“RSPCA WA Executive Manager Animal and Enforcement Operations, Hannah Dreaver, said it was never acceptable to deliberately hurt an animal.“Sasha could not escape the kneeing and would have suffered fear as well as pain from her fractured rib, and the haphazard way in which she was being carried.”Sasha remains in RSPCA WA’s care pending a 28-day appeal period.”
