Man Killed And Ate Puppy


Recommended Posts

A Fitzroy Crossing man who killed and ate a puppy in front of horrified onlookers, including a five-year-old child, has escaped jail.

West Kimberley Magistrate Colin Roberts sentenced Daniel Thomas Adriaens, 27, to a 12-month pre-sentence order, saying the incident was "abhorrent and shocking" and the worst case of animal cruelty he had seen.

Adriaens, a chronic solvent sniffer living in a humpy near the Fitzroy River, pleaded guilty to ill treating the animal but claimed he had killed it humanely.

About 6pm on April 23, a passerby heard a puppy yelping near the river and found Adriaens cutting its throat with a knife. By the time police attended, he had gutted and roasted it and cut off its ears, storing one in his backpack.

He told police he had done it because he was "starving hungry".

A Fitzroy Crossing man who killed and ate a puppy in front of horrified onlookers, including a five-year-old child, has been fined more than $2500.

Daniel Thomas Adriaens appeared in Fitzroy Crossing Magistrate's Court yesterday before West Kimberley Magistrate Colin Roberts, who had previously described the incident as "abhorrent and shocking", and the worst case of animal cruelty he had seen.

Adriaens, a chronic solvent sniffer living in a humpy near the Fitzroy River, pleaded guilty in September last year to ill-treating the animal but claimed he had killed it humanely.

The court was told that about 6pm on April 23, 2011, a passerby had heard a puppy yelping near the river and found Adriaens cutting its throat with a knife. By the time police attended, he had gutted and roasted it and cut off its ears, storing one in his backpack.

He told police he had done it because he was "starving hungry".

Magistrate Roberts fined Adriaens $2500 plus costs for the charge of animal cruelty, and $500 plus costs for a charge regarding a burning permit.

Without any form of justification or condonement and hopefuly not sounding racist...but I do believe there are some allowances made for the indiginous community when it comes to "hunting and eating their own food"????

But yeah....substance abuser...not surprising.

If he really does live in a humpy and hasn't enough food to eat he probably has no means to pay the fine. Maybe he will end up in jail working it off. He'd be stoked, food and accommodation for a month or so at the governments expense - you beauty.

Mores likely they will garnish his welfare payments, which they probably already do.
