Life's a Bitch

Pet groomer Sun Hu was jailed two weeks for using a clipper to hit a dog last month. The three-year-old Maltese terrier died of head injuries while still on the grooming table. A post-mortem by the Veterinary Pathology Branch of the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) revealed that the dog had been hit on the head. The maximum punishment is a $10,000 fine and a year in jail.
