QUOTE
A man who killed his wife's dog and threatened to kill her has been sentenced to six months in jail.

William David Streeter, 29, of Cloyfin Park, Coleraine, was convicted of seven counts of animal cruelty and one of making threats to kill.

The judge said it was one of the worst cases he had seen involving animals.



Streeter hanged golden retriever Mac by his collar, kicked him with steel toe-capped boots and hit him with a boulder in October 2006.

North Antrim Magistrates' Court heard that he threatened to kill his wife two days after the dog's death.

The one-year-old pedigree dog died after Streeter put a choke chain around its neck and hanged it from a rafter in his garage.


The dog suffered severe bruising and swelling to his back and head as well as two broken ribs. There was also evidence of bleeding on his brain and lungs.

One day earlier, he had left the dog hanging in the garage and taunted his wife who untied her much-loved pet.

Speaking outside court, Streeter's former wife Alison McMonagle said she believed the sentence should have been longer.

"He was just like Jack Nicholson (in The Shining) - it was as if he was inhuman. He was just pure evil.

"I was shocked, I thought the sentence should maybe be a wee bit longer. Mac's laid to rest today. It was the one thing I wanted to do and I did it," she said.

A defence lawyer said Streeter "has accepted that his behaviour on the days in question went far beyond the pale, he has made no excuse for his behaviour.

"He simply lost it. It is behaviour that he sincerely and genuinely regrets."

Magistrate Richard Wilson said he had little alternative but to impose a custodial sentence.

He said he wanted to convey the court's disapproval and detestation of what happened over a period of days in imposing an immediate prison term.

Streeter was released on bail pending a High Court appeal.

As part of his sentence, he was banned from having an animal for 10 years.





I just can't get my head around the sentences being handed out of this kind of thing. This piece of shit tortures this poor dog to death and leaves it hanging in the garage and he's given just 6 months in jail and banned for keeping animals for 10 years? This man is clearly evil and should be locked up for life if there was any real justice. Pathetic 6 month sentence aside, was the ban for 10 years a pisstake? Torturing an animal to death isn't enough for a lifetime ban of keeping them?

Why are the sentences so laughable.. what's the big difference between doing what he did to a human and doing it to a dog?


Just makes me want to leave this country but I doubt the sentences are much better elsewhere.

He's a dog, not a person. Dogs have no rights. People eat them in Asia. There's probably some psychiatric evaluation involved with the sentencing, but I agree he should have gotten more time.

ffs, 6 months? That's horrible, he clearly has some psychotic problems. Did they at least give him a restraining order from his wife, and a psychiatric analysis?

Consider it the Michael Vick effect. Vick runs a dogfighting ring with money he made in the NFL, and was convicted of some pretty terrible things. He tortured dogs, and even killed them by electrocution and slamming them to the ground should they not fight well enough, and all he got was 22 months. Hell - he will probably attempt a comeback when his jail time ends in 2009.

Makes me sick. People abusing defenseless animals for no reason other than that they can. They should all be put to death imhaho.

He didn't just kill the dog though.. he tortured it and killed it.. kicking it in the head and hanging it up in the garage. A person capable of that kind fo thing shouldn't get a measly 6 months in jail.

Sentences for animal cruelty are just far too lenient and and they need completely overhauling.. got to send out the message that you can't get off lightly with doing such horrific things to animals which feel pain and suffering much the same way as humans do.

this shit really pisses me off.

how pathetic must this man be, if he feels powerful for torturing and eventually killing an innocent animal.

i get depressed when i hear about this kind of stuff. i have had animals all my life and i could never imagine harming them in any way.

IMO there is no punishment too harsh for scum like this.

He should be hung by a collar and kicked with steel-toed boots and see what it fucking feels like the son of a bitch. They need to do something about the sentences because they need to be up in fucking YEARS!
