I ain't going anywhere that allows a man to beat a defenceless animal to death in public and not suffer serious consequences.
There is a direct relation to the abuse of animals and the abuse of defenseless people. If he's capable of one, he's perfectly capable of the other. There are no barriers like normal people have, no line that won't be crossed.
He must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Ghandi had it right when he said, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
Now, I live in a country far, far away but anyone caught doing that to a dog in Scotland would be waking up in hospital if they were really, really lucky.
