Remember that horrible viral video of a dog being mocked as it’s hanged to death off a pier by three Kaohsiung Marine Corp soldiers? –If you never saw it, good for you.
It was nasty. And now comes news these sickos who seemed to delight in the suffering of a helpless dog have learned their fate, and it’s fair to say many will think they got off pretty light.
The Central News Agency reports:
“The Kaohsiung District Court on Wednesday (June 28, 2017) sentenced three soldiers to six months in jail and fined them up to NT$150,000 each for the brutal killing of a dog last year that sparked a public uproar.
Sergeant Chen Yu-tsai (陳祐才), first private Chang Feng-yu (張峰瑜) and first private Hu Chia-wei (胡家瑋), were all Republic of China (Taiwan) Marine Corps members stationed in Kaohsiung.
Chen’s sentence can be commuted to a fine, while the two first privates received two-year suspensions of their sentences and were ordered by the court to perform 120 hours of community service instead.”
“Dogs kept on military bases will be registered and receive regular health checks in the future in the wake of a brutal killing of a puppy that sparked public uproar in Taiwan, the military said Tuesday. The actions were taken after Kaohsiung City Councilor Chen Hsin-yu (陳信瑜) posted an 80-second video on YouTube Sunday showing a young dog being killed by hanging on what turned out to be a military base.
