Man Sentenced For Tying A Condom Around His Dog's Genitals. Is Four Months Enough?


A Windsor man who tied a condom to his dog, injuring the animal so severely that it had to be put down, has received a four-month jail term.
Anjalo Abeywickrema, 51, told the court Friday he wasn't thinking right when he put a condom on his black Lab to stop it from urinating inside the house.
The dog ran off in May and was found on a street with its genitals so badly mutilated that it had to be euthanized.
Mr. Abeywickrema will serve four months in jail, will be on probation for two years and has received a five-year ban from owning an animal.
Defence lawyer Kevin Shannon says Mr. Abeywickrema is sorry for what he did.
Mr. Abeywickrema was on parole for manslaughter when the incident happened.
