Earlier this week, the Scottie News posted a horrible story from the Google archives about an evil Scottish earlier who beat a Scottie on this head. Sadly, a similar crime occurred in Scotland recently, but this time around animal rights activists and politicians are calling for a far stiffer sentence than 75-pound fine the the Earl received. Tory Member of the Scottish Parliament, Margaret Mitchell, said:
“This man should never be allowed to have animals again.
“Ordinary people will find it hard to believe that someone could do this to a defenceless animal.
“I would hope his sentence will reflect the horror the public will feel about this incident.”
A spokesman for the Westie Rescue Scheme said: “This is absolutely disgusting.
“All dogs have accidents but this man has completely overstepped the mark by what he has done.
“This is a very distressing case and our members would consider a jail sentence to be a reasonable disposal for a crime like this.”
