A county Armagh woman caught kicking a defenceless puppy was sentenced on Friday.
Mary Haughian, 34, Hill Street, Lurgan admitted causing unnecessary suffering to a Staffordshire terrier on October 11.
Craigavon Magistrates’ Court heard on how Haughian was caught kicking and dragging the three-month-old puppy when a video went viral on Facebook.
District Judge, Bernie Kelly, imposed a conditional discharge on the 34-year-old and ordered her to pay £664.39 costs.
She was banned from keeping animals for five years.
The judge also granted an order for the dog to be re-homed.
Speaking at the time a PSNI spokesperson said: “As animal lovers, we all had the same response to that video.
“The air turned blue in our office when we watched it, and significant levels of anger have been voiced.”
