Man back in jail for breaching animal ban

A man filmed kicking and punching his dog has been sentenced to a further 136 days in prison after he was caught breaching his 10 year ban on keeping animals .

Simeon Major, 20, of Buxton Road, Luton pleaded guilty at Luton magistrates court after being found with the same Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

Major was given the ban and an eight week custodial sentence last August after he was caught on CCTV kicking and punching his Staffordshire bull terrier in Brantwood Road, Luton in March 2010 in an attack which lasted 15 to 20 minutes.
 
At yesterday's hearing the court heard that the same dog had been found in Major's home by police who were investigating an unrelated matter.  The female dog was inside the flat, and there was clear evidence to show that she was being looked after there.
 
Major admitted that the dog was the one which he had been caught attacking on CCTV.
 
The court was told that Major had given the dog to a friend to be cared for while he was in prison, but the dog was returned to him afterwards because the friend could no longer look after it.
 
RSPCA inspector Peter Warne, said: "The original offence was a prolonged and disturbing attack. It wasn't just one kick and punch, he repeatedly attacked the terrified dog over a sustained period of time."
 
Dream is currently in the care of the RSPCA.
