Becky Barton reports:

Michael Hill was sentenced to two years in prison after admitting to wrapping electrical tape around a dog’s head and legs and leaving it to die in a parking lot in Ontario. He was also banned, upon his release, from owning any sort of animal anywhere in the country for nearly 30 years. However, it was the order that he give his DNA to the national data banks that grabbed residents and legal experts.
