#TheList Jibriel Guled, born c. 1994, of Barclay Close, Cassidy Road, Fulham SW6 – kicked a four-month puppy to death
Guled was jailed and banned from keeping animals for life after he was found guilty of causing unnecessary suffering to a Staffordshire bull terrier called Bibi by the infliction of physical abuse, namely blunt force trauma.
The RSPCA and police attended the property on 23 June, 2018, following a call to 999.
Bibi was sadly already dead and RSPCA Inspector Mike Beaman, who investigated, collected her body which had been placed in a wicker basket and wrapped in blankets.
Inspector Beaman said, “This was an extremely sad case involving a young dog whose life was cut short far too soon. Myself and the police attended the property in June last year after the police received an emotional 999 call from someone claiming Guled had kicked his dog.
“Poor Bibi would have experienced extreme pain and suffering from this physical abuse which we now believe was inflicted on her over a period of months.”
Somali national Guled said in court that the bed inside the property had collapsed on top of Bibi and this had caused her injuries and killed her.
A post-mortem examination of the dog’s body revealed that there were also three historical injuries of blunt force trauma to the dog’s body which occurred between May and June before the final incident which led to her death.
Sentencing: 26-week custodial sentence; £1000 in costs. Banned from keeping all animals for life.
