Puppy killer pleads guilty

A Te Kuiti man has today pleaded guilty to bludgeoning to death a six month old pup with a golf club.
Mathew George, 44, appeared briefly this morning in the Te Kuiti District Court and admitted charges of wilfully ill-treating an animal, possessing an offensive weapon and threatening behaviour.

(...) Police today said they would be seeking to ban George from owning a dog for 10 years.

Outside court, Te Kuiti/North King Country SPCA president Sandra Squier said George's attack on the pup was one of the most extreme cases of animal abuse she had seen.
