Child’s Dog ‘Kicked To Death’ By Virus

dogTHE Daily Express’ front-page screamed “THUGS STAMP A CHILD’S DOG TO DEATH”, and asked What has happened to our country?

ANIMAL welfare campaigners were left shocked and stunned last night after a teenage yob stamped a puppy to death in front of its owner.

They described the mindless attack, which happened in broad daylight, as “sickening” and urged the public not to turn a blind eye to such vile behaviour.

“Despite an intensive and thorough investigation, police have been unable to locate any other witnesses to an alleged incident in which the puppy was reportedly injured.”
