One Ohio judge is famous for giving unconventional and very creative sentences to animal abusers, and it’s gaining national attention. He wants these criminals to learn and understand that it is never acceptable to hurt a kind soul.
Judge Mike’s clever punishments make people think twice about breaking the law. and animal lovers everywhere are loving it.
For instance, one neglectful woman who subjected her dog to living in filth was sentenced to spend a day at the dump. Judge Mike said at the hearing:
“I want you to go down to the county dump, to the landfill, and I want them to find the stinkiest, smelliest, God-awful odor place they can find in that dump and I want you to sit there for eight hours tomorrow, to think about what you did to that dog while you smell the odor. If you puke, you puke.”
Another animal abuser, who abandoned 35 kittens in the woods, had to spend a night alone in the snowy wilderness, herself (along with jail time and a fine). He told her:
“How would you like to be dumped off at a metro park late at night, spend the night listening to the coyotes … listening to the raccoons around you in the dark night, and sit out there in the cold not knowing where you’re going to get your next meal, not knowing when you are going to be rescued?”

In addition to making criminals think hard about their actions, Judge Mike said that his headline-making sentences raise awareness about crimes and consequences. He hopes that people will realize that abuse and neglect is a crime, and those that witness it happening should call the police.
