Thumbs up Man Sentenced Two Years For Puppy Death

A 30-year-old man who beat a puppy to death in Davenport has been given two years in prison. Online court records say Zachary Meerdink had been convicted of animal torture.

Meerdink was sentenced on Tuesday in Scott County District Court. Police say Meerdink used a baseball bat in December to beat the 4-month-old Boston terrier. The puppy had urinated on the floor of a Davenport apartment Meerdink shared with his girlfriend.
Someone should beat him with a baseball bat. I hate people sometimes. I hope, when he gets out (should be never), he is banned from having pets or having/being around children.

Is it bad that I hope he dies? That's just unkind of me isn't it...

I wonder if his fellow inmates view puppy killers in the same realm as pedophiles and child killers. Just a thought....

They should have beat him with a freakin baseball bat.

Wonder what his girlfriend thinks of him now. If he beats a puppy to death just think what he may do to her or kids if they pee in the diapers.

4-month old puppy isnt house broken yet. They have small bladers. I hate this creep!

You have to be cruel beyond words to kill a puppy. To me my animals are like my children. They are taught right from wrong in a loving but firm way. I have 6 kids, about 40 chickens/baby chicks,30 something goats, 2 bottle fed baby goats, 1 cat, and 2 inside dogs/4 outside dogs..and have been frustrated with all of them but would never in a million years beat them to death. Prison is too good for this dude. IMOO

This has to be a first that I am aware of. This sentence should cause some shock waves throughout the US, dont you think?
