    The girl will go right back to him and she’ll end up dead in a year or two.

    Animal abusers rot in hell. This man should spend at least 5 years in prison for this crime. No parole. 5 long solid years.

    Thank goodness this psycho will now go on the FBI’s list of animal abusers to be watched for potential homicidal violence in the future, if he is convicted. I hope to hell they don’t let him plea bargain away any of the animal cruelty charges OR the assault against the girl. He truly belongs on the FBI list.
