World the Netanya court sentenced a resident of tel-Mond David Shmuel to 13 months in prison, finding him guilty of animal abuse.
This is one of the harshest sentences in the history of Israel in articles about the animal abuse.
Samuel was convicted after June of this year went to a nearby building and stabbed and tied him threatening the dog, and then left her to die.
Eventually the dog was rescued, but she had to endure a series of serious operations.
During the trial, Samuel pleaded guilty and expressed regret for what he did. He claimed that he hit the dog in retaliation because she attacked his mother and other people.
The prosecution demanded for him two years in prison, however the court was limited to 6 months, including the activation of 7 months of conditional imprisonment to which he was sentenced earlier for other crimes of violence.
