Should a pet owner spend time a prison?

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- "A Queens woman has allegedly been caught on video beating her dog with a snow shovel."

"One of the witnesses used a camera phone to tape the abuse, also capturing Spike's howls of pain. Aguilar is seen throwing Spike to the ground and then slamming him with a snow shovel."

"Spike will probably walk with a limp and will be blind in one eye."
The pet owner faces 4 years in prison.

  • ewww, gross feeling in my stomach... I definately believe that anyone who abuses, whether its a creature or a human, should do time. I'm not crazy about animals, but they have rights too. Poor dog wasn't even doing anything, just standing there.

  • I hate my dog sometimes, but I'm not that mean. She ought to fry.

  • Absolutely. If they can hurt a defenseless animal they have the mentality to hurt a child.

  • I absolutely can't watch the link, animal abuse makes me sick. I don't know how a person could videotape that and NOT beat her skull in with that damn shovel... Yes, she deserves to go to jail. Somebody who could hurt an innocent animal could do the same thing to just about anybody, including children.
