Teenage Puppy Beater Sentenced

Robin Sangil, 18, was convicted of animal abuse on Wednesday, Feb. 27.

An 18-year-old man has been sentenced to three years of probation after pleading guilty to felony animal cruelty.

Robin Sangil was convicted of beating three husky puppies to death in a row. Two of the puppies died and another was seriously injured.

He purchased two puppies and went to the same breeder for a new puppy by saying it was for family members. A third puppy was also given to him.

“One puppy was paralyzed after being slammed into a wall,” said Deputy District Attorney Cherie Somerville.

She said Sangil also aided in drowning another puppy and a third puppy sustained several broken bones.

The incidents happened over a two-month period last year.

A group from the local chapter of Animal Protection and Rescue League gathered outside the court protesting Sangil’s actions.

The judge ordered Sangil to take anger management classes and as a term of probation, he is not allowed to own or possess an animal for three years.
