#TheList Kristopher John Anderson, born 07/10/1984, of 100 Jasmine Terrace, Aberdeen AB24 5LG – punched and kicked a three-month puppy before throwing her at parked cars, causing her to be scared and injured
Anderson admitted punching the Staffordshire bull terrier as well as repeatedly kicking her, before throwing her at parked cars on January 26, 2015, on South Silver Street, North Silver Street and Golden Square, Aberdeen. He then told police officers to kill the dog as he no longer wanted her.
The helpless animal was left with a large cut above her right eye which had to be stapled shut by a vet.
The court heard Anderson was seen by a witness and appeared to be drunk.
Anderson’s defence agent Neil McRobert said his client had issues with alcohol.
Sentencing: jailed for 20 weeks for the attack, failing to appear in court and breaching a community order. Banned from keeping animals for 10 years (expires June 2025).
UPDATE: in October 2016 Anderson appeared in court again after being caught with a puppy he had just bought. The outcome of this case isn’t known.
