A Texas man who abused a puppy so severely that the pup had to be humanely euthanized has been sentenced to 12 years in prison. According to CBS News, the puppy abuser, 27-year-old Andrew Callaway, was sentenced on Tuesday by Judge Mark Rusch .
Callaway has stated that he regretted his fit of rage which severely wounded the boxer mix puppy. The pup suffered multiple broken bones after Callaway hurled him against a wall. Efforts were made to save the puppy but the injuries proved to be too severe.
Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis commented on the abuser’s sentencing:
“The sense out there in our community — I think this is true across the nation — is that animal cruelty will be tolerated. There’s no excuse for it and can’t be tolerated.”
“We have to make sure that we have an evidence-based prosecution. Sometimes, things happen and we don’t have the evidence for a strong case. In this case, we did have the evidence and it helped.”
