Pet ban for man's fatal dog kick at Amlwch, Anglesey

Holyhead Magistrates Magistrates also ordered Turner to carry out 300 hours community service.

A man who kicked a dog so hard she later died of her injuries has been given an 18-week suspended jail term.

Alistair Turner, 25, from Barking, Essex, admitted causing unnecessary suffering to Eira, a white Bichon Frise at a house at Amlwch on Anglesey.

Turner was banned from keeping animals for five years for the attack which the RSPCA called "gruesome and aggressive".

Eira was thrown across the kitchen and had her liver ruptured by the kick, Holyhead magistrates heard.

Turner was also ordered to carry out 300 hours community service for the attack in April 2013.

The 18-week jail sentence was suspended for two years.

RSPCA Insp Andy Broadbent said it was a deliberate act of cruelty.

"It was an unprovoked attack on Eira, who was a family pet," he added.
