Judge sentenced on animal abuser will spend 15 years in prison
Judge sentenced on animal abuser will spend 15 years in prison in south Carolina. Still, animal advocates say the penalty shows a strong message that animal abuse will not be tolerated.
William Dodson is going to be spending the next 15 years in prison. Five of those he owes to taping his pit bull Caitlyn’s mouth and nose shut for 36 hours nearly two years ago.
The picture of Caitlyn’s snout, scarred from the tape her abuser wrapped around it spread all over the internet nearly two years ago. Caitlyn’s became an international sensation and a her name a rallying cry for anti-cruelty activists. The sentencing on a felony charge for the mistreatment of animals ended Friday.
