#TheList Darren Walker, age unknown, of Southcourt, Aylesbury – stabbed a dog multiple times; despite attempts by vets to save her, the dog died from her injuries
Walker was sent to prison for causing unnecessary suffering to the female dog, named Kai, who was stabbed multiple times at a property in Aylesbury.
He received a further charge of using threatening or abusive words or behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.
While Kai’s condition was initially described as ‘stable’, we understand that she has since died from her injuries, which included a throat wound.
A post on Thames Valley Police Aylesbury Vale’s Facebook page read:
“On Tuesday 23rd April 2019 officers from #TEAM2 #ARV and #NHPT arrested a male on suspicion of causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal and using threatening abusive words or behaviour likely to cause harassment ,alarm or distress.
“Officers were called to an address in Aylesbury where a male had stabbed a dog multiple times resulting in emergency surgery and treatment with a local vet. On arrest the male was abusive to attending officers and members of the public.
“Yesterday at High Wycombe Magistrates’ court he pleaded guilty to these offences and has been imprisoned for 12 weeks. As well as this he has also been given a ban for 5 years from owning any other dog.”
Police decided for reasons unknown not to release Walker’s name and the local press haven’t published it either. It’s a sad day when the monsters living in our communities are allowed to remain anonymous despite their despicable acts.
Sentencing: 12 weeks in jail. Five-year ban on owning a dog.
