What I found really interesting is that this thug owned an iguana, a snake, and a dog. What sort of treatment were these animals sustaining under his care? You would think that someone who owned animals, reptiles especially, wouldn't engage in such terrible behavior.

I was glad to hear he got a harsher than usual sentence. It was also good to hear that he had to pay a settlement to the family to pay for the tortoise's vet bills as well as the security system. I was curious about these death threats the family had received, however. Was the defendant responsible for these, or some other thugs who perhaps acted as accomplices? Whatever the case, my advice to the family would be to stay vigilant. Perhaps they should get a dog to alert them of intruders. I personally have a pug whom I sent to obedience school. Anytime someone even comes near the house, he yelps loud enough to raise my neighbors.

T.G.
