Animal Cruelty takes a new level of inhumanity! What we hear nowadays is too horrible to believe, Days ago we’ve shared with you the story of the cruel man who charged with animal cruelty when he cooked his Chihuahua and died and that sick man who put a poor dog in a glass box of boiling water! Today’s story is one of these heartbreaking stories that make us doubt that humanity still exists in our world.
A North Carolina man, Douglas Joseph Hagler, 47 was sentenced to 100 days in jail after stabbing his dog repeatedly with a samurai sword when it bit his roommate. Hagler’s lawyer said that his client is an alcoholic who does not remember that he tied the Siberian husky named Koda to a tree and gave it 11 stab wounds and broken ribs.
A judge in Raleigh also ordered Hagler to substance abuse treatment, five years of probation including two with an alcohol monitor and to stay away from dogs, Mail Online reports.
“I think the thing that concerns me most is the statement that was made that you cannot handle yourself well in stressful situations. Life is one series of stressful situations after another,” the judge said.
The husky had just turned one-year-old when he died, and Hagler was charged with felony cruelty to animals.
Dozens of pro-animal protesters in a group called Justice for Koda demonstrated outside of one of his court appearances in June. Hagler’s roommate said she was attacked by the dog the day before his death and was at the hospital receiving treatment when the animal was killed.
Residents who called 911 after according to The News & Observer said that Hagler was wielding an up to three-foot sword with a studded handle. The canine owner was allegedly saying, ‘the dog’s a killer’ and Koda was heard yelping during the 911 call. ‘What are you doing to his dog?’ the distressed caller yelled at Hagler as he told authorities what was happening.
