Outrage At Soft Sentences For Evil Pair Who Headbutted Dog And Threw It Down The Stairs
Warning, this video is rather graphic and is extremely hard to watch. Andrew and Daniel Frankish, brother who are 21 and 19, respectively, have received a 21 week sentence with a 6 month curfew, for the actions that they performed in this video.
The brothers filmed themselves savagely beating their pet bull dog, Baby. In the video the brothers can be seen hitting the dog, jumping on her repeatedly, and even head butting her, and throwing her down the stairs.
Outrage has sparked due to the lightness of their sentencing, and a petition has started on change.org to get David Cameron to look over the case himself.

Alex Richardson-Lee, the 24 year old man who started the petition on change.org, said that the sheer brutality of the actions in the video is what drove him to push for a different sentence.
He believes that the boys in the video are clearly enjoying the torture that they are inflicting on their dog, and anyone who can stomach watching through the entire clip would probably agree with him.
So far the brothers’s current sentence stands, but that looks like it is likely to change, as many are disgusted with the footage and believe that the brothers deserve a much harsher sentence. If you agree with those other 62,000 signatures, you can find the petition on change.org and add your name to the list. Share, people.
