This shocking video shows the horrific moment a teenager kicked and stamped on a defenceless elderly dog.
Jordan Kearsley, 18, repeatedly beat the German shepherd, which belongs to his father, while taking it and another one for a walk in the park in May.
The unemployed thug was caught on CCTV and banned from owning animals for life – but he was spared a jail sentence.
Dartford Magistrates’ Court heard when Kearsley’s father saw the footage he banned him from having any contact with the dogs again.
In the sickening footage Kearsley can be seen pulling the female dog, called Blaze, to the ground before standing on her with his full weight.
And at one point, Blaze lies motionless on the ground for almost 30 seconds before Kearsley drags her to her feet.
Kearsley also had a Doberman on a lead, but luckily this dog is not seen to be harmed.
Kent Police officers were called to Gordon Promenade, in Gravesend, Kent, and Kearsley was arrested before the dogs were taken away.
Kearsley, formerly of Sutton, Kent, admitted causing unnecessary suffering to Blaze and was sentenced to 12 weeks in prison – suspended for 18 months, during a hearing on Monday.
He was also ordered to attend a probation centre and pay #750 costs and made the subject of a 12-week curfew, forcing him to stay at home between 8.30pm and 6am.
The RSPCA said Blaze suffered from shock and bruising, but did not have any long-lasting injuries.
RSPCA inspector Vikki Dawe said: “This video footage was heartbreaking to see. This poor elderly dog was being kicked and stamped on. The violence was horrific.”
