[efoods]This week’s pitiful sentencing of the ‘deer killer boys’ got me thinking; if young boys are so bored that they are stomping a young deer to death “for a laugh” what can be done to occupy them?
The two 17-year-old boys were found guilty at Poole Youth Court of killing a fawn in Upton Country Park in June. The boys were “egging” each other on, with one swinging the deer by its leg and another karate chopping its head, before they “stomped” it to death, the court heard.
The fawn, which was four to six weeks old, suffered several skull fractures, a severed spine and a fractured right leg. District Judge Roger House said: “The penalty for this offence is such that there cannot be imprisonment in the youth court.”
