#TheList Sean McKay, born c. 2000, of Stranraer – stabbed girlfriend’s American Bulldog
Vicious thug Sean McKay was on bail when he attacked the dog, named Hooch, with a knife. Hooch is believed to have survived the incident though details are sketchy.
McKay lashed out after falling out with girlfriend Melissa Johnstone and two women on February 5, 2019, in Girvan, South Ayrshire.
Although he had denied the charge, he was convicted of causing a protected animal unnecessary suffering by repeatedly striking him on the body with a knife.
Troubled McKay appeared in the dock handcuffed to a prison officer, with a bandaged right hand.
It is understood he has mental health issues which cause him to harm himself.
Sentencing:12 months in custody for the animal cruelty offence with a further three months added for committing it while on bail. He was given seven months for using threatening behaviour to three women. All sentences are to run consecutively. Lifetime ban on keeping an animal.
