Update: Man Sentenced For Beating, Kicking Puppy

Comments Off on Update: Man Sentenced For Beating, Kicking Puppy

“I think the punishment this bxxxxxd received for causing such pain & trauma to a puppy; is pathetic! Anyone who can do this to a little puppy, isn’t going to stop because they have attended a course! The violence is already ingrained in them & will always be part of them. They have a serious & often deadly temper, which doesn’t take much to provoke & they snap! Someone who can beat a puppy so badly by strangling & banging its head on a porch floor, are a danger not only to animals but to other humans too, especially children & spouses; they like to intimidate & control etc. they are ticking time bombs! Had the neighbour not seen Palmer in the act, he would probably have killed that poor little pup!” 

EVERETT — A Snohomish County judge on Tuesday advised a Sultan man that he should have bought a book about housebreaking dogs instead of beating a puppy named Precious.

Superior Court Judge Eric Lucas told the man that a step-by-step book from Petco would have been more productive than physically assaulting the animal. “It’s not that difficult,” Lucas said.

Kenneth Palmer was sentenced to 30 days in jail for the Oct. 17 incident. He had already served 45 days and was expected to be released Tuesday. Palmer, 44, also was ordered to complete a class on preventing animal cruelty. Lucas banned Palmer from ever again owning dogs, or similar pets, or even residing in a home with dogs.

Palmer apologized, saying he was “just trying to discipline the puppy,” but admitted he’d only owned a cat in the past.

“I’ll never discipline another pet again as long as I live,” he said. “Too right pal, because you are banned from owning any more!”  

Palmer pleaded guilty last week to first-degree animal cruelty. He faced up to a year in jail. Prosecutors recommended the 30-day sentence and asked for 10 months of community supervision. Snohomish County deputy prosecutor Robert Grant also pushed for the defendant to be required to attend a class about animal abuse.

Palmer was accused of beating a pitbull-mix puppy because he was angry that the dog wasn’t housebroken. The animal suffered internal bleeding but has since made a full recovery.

The incident came to the attention of police after a neighbour reported seeing Palmer kick Precious across a yard and pick the dog up by the throat. The woman told police Palmer later had the animal by the throat and was hitting her head against a porch floor.

The woman screamed for Palmer to stop. The woman threatened to call 911 if Palmer didn’t hand over the dog. She told police that eventually Palmer tossed Precious to her. The woman was able to catch the dog. She fled and called police.

Precious was vomiting and unable to hold up her head or walk, court papers said.

The puppy was taken to Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital, where an ultrasound revealed internal bleeding, most likely involving the liver or spleen. A veterinarian said that type of severe trauma is typically only present if a dog has been hit by a car or kicked in the stomach. The puppy also had an injury to her eye, either from direct trauma to the eye or increased blood pressure due to strangulation.

Palmer on Tuesday was ordered to pay $753 to the Snohomish County Auditor’s Office, which oversees animal control services.

Two teens charged after shooting, killing livestock

Comments Off on Two teens charged after shooting, killing livestock

“The little shit’s, how would they like it if a gun man walked around their house killing their beloved dogs or other pets…did these thugs think “oh it’s only cattle & a horse, they mean nothing”? These thugs need to be taught a lesson & although they have given the name of the 18 yr old as  Julian Bliss they should also name the other 15 yr old; if their old enough to do the crime, they are definitely old enough to do some time & especially be named. A kid of 15 knows exactly what he is doing, it’s no excuse, prosecute them both to the fullest degree & make a bloody example out of them!!”

Spruce Grove and Stony Plain RCMP have arrested and charged two teenage boys, after officers were called to an incident where a number of livestock animals were found shot back in June.

Investigators announced Friday that two boys, aged 18 and 15-years-old faced a total of 28 charges, including counts of killing or injuring cattle, careless use of a firearm and mischief.

In addition, two long-barreled shotguns were seized.

“We were able to interview a couple of people of interest,” Insp. Gary Graham said. “We were able to interview them and subsequently both individuals were officially charged today.”

The charges were laid in connection to an investigation that started in June, 2012, when RCMP said officers received three calls on June 20, 2012, complaining that their livestock had been shot.

Investigators found a horse, a calf, and four cows in total suffering from gunshot woundsand while two of the cows eventually recovered, the rest died.

CTV News covered the shocking deaths when residents reported the shootings in June.

Wade Thordarson said the calf and a cow shot in the incidents belonged to his 13-year-old daughter, who had owned the cattle for a year as part of a 4H project.

On Friday, CTV News learned the older boy facing charges is Julian Bliss.

Thordarson said Bliss and his family live near his home – and he has met the young man.

“I was hoping it wouldn’t be anyone from the area,” Thordarson said. “[I’m] quite surprised to know them, and that they’re from the area.

“That’s very disturbing.”

Sultan Man Faces Felony Charge In Assault On Puppy

Comments Off on Sultan Man Faces Felony Charge In Assault On Puppy

“What I don’t get in this story, is why the owners of the puppy have nothing to say; perhaps they just don’t care either…it’s just a dog right? WRONG!! Its a living breathing sentient being that feels pain, bleeds & hurts just like we do!

“Thank heaven the neighbour was able to get the puppy away, little precious certainly was precious & had a guardian angel that day…had she not been there to stop the abuse, the little pup may have been killed! Abusive cowardly bullies like Palmer make me sick, always picking on those who can’t fight back. I hope this knob spends his anger management issues in the county jail!!”

SULTAN — A Sultan man accused of kicking and choking a puppy named Precious has been charged with a felony.

Prosecutors allege that Kenneth Palmer beat a pit-bull mix puppy because he was angry that the dog wasn’t housebroken. The animal suffered severe trauma, but is expected to make a full recovery, court papers said.

Palmer, 43, was charged Friday with first-degree animal cruelty. He is expected to answer to the charge later this month in Snohomish County Superior Court.

Police were called Oct. 17 to a home in Sultan, where Palmer was a house-guest neighbour reported that she saw Palmer kick 2-month-old Precious across her neighbors’ yard and pick the dog up by the throat. Concerned for the puppy, she ran toward the pair. She told police Palmer had the animal by the throat and was hitting her head against a porch floor.

The woman screamed for Palmer to stop. She told police the puppy belonged to the home-owners, her neighbors.

Palmer allegedly told the woman the dog was his and repeatedly talked about the puppy defecating everywhere, Snohomish County deputy prosecutor Cheryl Johnson wrote in court papers.

The woman threatened to call 911 if Palmer didn’t hand over the dog. She told police that eventually Palmer tossed Precious to her. The woman was able to catch the dog. She fled and called 911. Palmer allegedly chased after the woman, but she warned him that she would defend herself if he stepped onto her property. Palmer left.

Precious was vomiting and unable to hold up her head or walk, court papers said.

The puppy was taken to Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital, where an ultrasound revealed internal bleeding, most likely involving the liver or spleen. A veterinarian said that type of severe trauma is typically only present if a dog has been hit by a car or kicked in the stomach. The puppy also had an injury to her eye, either from direct trauma to the eye or increased blood pressure due to strangulation.

When police questioned Palmer, he reportedly told them that he was disciplining the dog because she wouldn’t go outside to defecate, court papers said. He said “maybe” he shouldn’t have kicked or thrown the puppy. He later allegedly told an animal control officer that Precious was “just” a dog. “Maybe??..he shouldn’t have kicked or thrown the puppy…MAYBE…WTF… Perhaps someone ought to do similar to Palmer; then see if he thinks it still a ‘MAYBE’ shouldn’t have done it or learnt that ‘ABSOLUTELY NOT’ is the correct answer!! What a pretentious twat…it’s not just a dog either, it a living sentient being that feels pain just like we do.

The man told police he already owes the courts 16 hours in anger management class’s. “Well I hope the judge had the balls to say he better attend the course & more…before his temper makes him beat some other poor innocent being up!”

Palmer animal control officer investigating cats shot with pellets, dog found abandoned in Bondsville

Comments Off on Palmer animal control officer investigating cats shot with pellets, dog found abandoned in Bondsville

PALMER – At least three cats have been shot with a pellet gun in the Bondsville section of town, and the animal control officer is hoping that by publicizing the incident, the culprit will be found, or scared into stopping.

This dog was found tied to a tree behind the Shell Station on Route 181 in Bondsville on Sunday.

Wendy LeSage, animal control officer, said a man who lives in Bondsville has been threatening cat owners since last year that he will shoot their cats if they enter his yard to defecate or go after the birds he feeds, but she is not sure if he is behind the shootings.

She said he has denied involvement to police. She plans to interview him soon.

LeSage said she can sympathize with people who do not want cats in their yards, but said shooting them is not how to deal with the problem.

“We’re definitely going to follow up. We’re going to prosecute,” LeSage said.

Police Chief Robert P. Frydryk said a Main Street resident in Bondsville reported on Monday that his cat had been hit twice by pellets.

Stephen G. Fellers said his 20-year-old cat, Tom, wasn’t acting right, so his friend took him to the veterinarian, who discovered he had two BBs inside him.

“It’s just too bad that somebody would do something like that,” Fellers said.

Fellers estimated that Tom was shot sometime during the first week of the month. He said he’s keeping Tom inside from now on “until this episode gets through.” He said a downstairs tenant said her cat also was shot with a pellet gun around the same time.

In another incident, LeSage said the pet owner cannot afford to have the pellet removed from the cat, and she is looking into options to help the cat owner.

LeSage said she is also trying to track down information about the owner of a terrier mix dog that was found in Bondsville on Sunday. The dog, estimated to be about 4 years old, was found tied on a leash to a tree on a trail behind the Shell Station on Route 181, near a popular fishing spot.

“We found the leash wrapped through the handle. It’s not like the dog got tangled there,” LeSage said. “He’s in good shape, but he’s kind of a grumpy, little dog.”

LeSage doesn’t know if someone just wanted to get rid of him, so they left him on a well-traveled path, or someone stole him and left him there.

“I don’t think he was there too long,” LeSage said.

She said she wants to question the owner “to find out what’s going on.”

“We need to educate people that we can help them, but they do need to take responsibility,” LeSage said.
