Man jailed for attack on hamster

A former member of the Royal Navy has been jailed after admitting he kicked a pet hamster through the air like a rugby ball.

John Ackland, a divorced father of two, "dropkicked" Bruno, an albino hamster, three metres through the air during a "horrific attack" at his former girlfriend's home in Wincanton, Somerset, on May 3 this year.

Ackland, 31, also used a chair leg to pot Bruno like a snooker ball, hurled the tiny pet from an upstairs window during the drunken attack which was witnessed by two teenage girls and posted the animal through a neighbour's letterbox.

The creature was so badly injured during the ordeal that vets were forced to put it down.

Ackland was sentenced to 60 days' imprisonment at hearing at Yeovil Magistrates Court.

I felt that justice was served for the poor hamster, i hope this teaches the person and those people that think it's funny to harm animals makes so angry.

I just can't belive someone would think to so somehting so DISGUSTING. He should just be shot and killed, better yet let's punt him through a window!

My mother and I read this together. (I was showing her the turkey card.) Her exact words..."This is why people shouldn't get drunk."

I'm afraid thats the kind of world we live in today, some people just hate animals and see them as a ways and means to get at someone else. He deserves more than 60 days in prison and i don't think even after release he will have learnt his lesson unfortunately

All those bad guy's out there are let to get away with their crimes.
I belive if someone can do this to a poor defencless animal, they can and WILL do it to another human being. And that makes them a danger to our scociety.

All serial killers start out hurting animals.

That sicko needs to be hurled through a few windows and beat with a steel bat! Perhaps he didn't get enough time since he was a bigshot. People in the area where I am would get much worse for doing something like that.

Thats absolutly digusting, he should get way longer than 60 days! What if he goes out and does it again. I think he desevres more of a punishment.
