#TheList Jamie Dennis Gordon Elsworthy, also known as Jamie Hill, born c. 1970, of Bath Road, Bournemouth – hurled a dog against a wall in a beer garden after hitting and kicking him
Elsworthy admitted committing the offence in Woodend Road in Bournemouth on April 14, 2019.
It took place in the beer garden of the Buffalo Bar when it was in Woodend Road in Winton. The bar has since been relocated.
Police issued a CCTV appeal at the time because officers were unable to identify Elsworthy or the owner of the dog.
The appeal appeared in the Daily Echo and prompted more than 100 readers to voice their anger.
Elsworthy pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal, namely a dog, by throwing it against a wall, kicking it and hitting it when he appeared before Poole magistrates on Friday August 21.
The charge was brought under the Animal Welfare Act 2006.
Police said the dog did not suffer any lasting injuries.
Elsworthy also pleaded guilty to failing to surrender to custody at Poole magistrates’ court on August 9, 2019.
A spokesperson for the RSPCA said: “This was an upsetting and shocking attack and no animal should be treated this way.”
Sentencing: community order with a rehabilitation activity requirement and 80 hours of unpaid work. He was ordered to carry out a further 100 hours of unpaid work for failing to surrender to custody. Total of £170 costs and charges. Three-year ban on keeping animals (expires August 2023).
