Prince Edward County OPP have charged a 23-year-old woman with assaulting her boyfriend, then killing and disposing of a puppy.

    This has broken my heart over and over. Innocent animals have a voice, when they greet you everyday and are loyal to you. They think of you as their gaurdian and protector. I would love to see the person sentenced as if she has killed an innocent person. If this happened over a fight (assault) with boyfriend, there is something terribly wrong. What is happening to her children, they too are innocent and need protection.

    Agree with all comments posted. She should be jailed and flogged. What a 23 year old to turn loose on the public. Publish her name also if she is found guilty.!!!!

    This terrible action seems to be increasing in society. That in itself is a frightening situation. The penalties for cruelty to animals and most certainly for bringing death by beating have to be significantly increased. If found guilty there should be jail time.

    Terry, Maggie and Dee you are correct
    This person should never be allowed in Public
    How could anyone kill an innocent puppy in such a horrible manner?

  5. Maggie Haylock says:

    Excellent point, Terry. The poor puppy was the one who needed protection. The so-called “victim” had a voice.

  6. AGREED! The excuse give was “to protect the victim”.

    The “victim” here was the innocent dog.

    She deserves to have her name in print and the boyfriend also ..despicable killing an innocent animal !! Some lashes with the whip would be proper punishment !!
