Horrific moment for a man jumping on his pet bulldog and then threw it down the stairs leaving it so badly injured. Andrew Frankish, 22, from Redcar, North Yorkshire, was seen driving his dog Baby into the ground from head height, swinging it around and stamping on her – while filmed by his brother Daniel, 19.
Baby lost the use of her hind legs and was put to sleep three months after the incident – and a petition has now been launched for the brothers’ sentences to be increased after they avoided jail. Last week they were sentenced at Hartlepool Magistrates’ Court to 21 weeks in prison, suspended for two years and a tagged curfew for six months, after pleading guilty to animal cruelty.
Mobile phone clips filmed by Daniel show Andrew picking Baby up at the top of wooden stairs before throwing her down. He is also seen lifting her over his head as the men laugh hysterically.
