  2. Wahoo says:

    Good now make up some new laws so they get what they deserve.

    • Pissant says:

      and for gods sake not a simple little slap on the wrist these a holes need to never see the light of day and have done to them what they thought was so funny to do only worse.

    • Overboard Hope says:

      YES, please deal with them soundly, and not a slap on the wrist.

  3. Just maybe now that the alleged culprits have been apprehended, Just maybe the courts can order the same treatment, be met out to the culprits as they did to these innocent animals.

    It would not be a pretty site to see these young man kicked around and thrown into cactus bus, but it may be a lesson that needs to be taught, in order to make other have second thoughts before taking on the role of being abusive t o animals.

    The pain for these lambs is real, and the courts needs to spare no mercy, these types of cruelty, warrant stiff penalties.

    • I agree, same way how I feel about REPARATIONS for Slavery.
      Oh my bad, that was a long time ago.

      • R0ckstar says:

        You were not a slave.

      • Mike Hind says:

        And what are you doing to make that happen?
        Have you organized groups to pressure Government, have you even broached the subject? Have you done ANYTHING other than whine on Bernews about it in a pathetic attempt to spread your venomous, privileged hate?

      • CHRIS says:

        Oh FFS. Go AWAY if life is so bad for you in 2019.

      • Toodle-oo says:

        You already have your ‘reparations’ . A cushy gov’t job that you can’t get fired from along with benefits the envy of people all over the world , paid for by us !

  4. Toodle-oo says:

  5. Mark says:

    I’d like to volunteer for jury duty please.

    • calbda says:

  7. Real Deal says:

  8. I would like to see them stripped of their clothes then thrown in the cactus bush. Whomever these boys belong to should be dealt with as well.

  9. Question says:

    Prediction: a fine and probation.

    • me and me says:

      unfortunately i think you will be right with the wimpy broken weak justice system we have, as an alternative may I be the judge for just this case please don’t care what the books say they will be punished beyond comprehension and then sent to Siberia for life

  10. SinnerSaint says:

    Name & shame them!! Nasty little so & so’s!!

  11. Street Smart says:

    These idiots should NEVER see the light of day ever again, for their appalling actions!!

    I have no faith in laws governed the bleeding hearts of the western society,to mead out the appropriate justice!!

  12. Justasuggestion says:

    Sadly so much has been said on record and in public by so many people of relevance, if this case ever comes to trial, those comments could be detrimental to the case and to that, the advantage of the accused. Well done SPCA for not offering a statement. Very professional and I wish every success on a custodial outcome. Fingers crossed

  13. Hair says:

    The culprits need to be swung by their tails and thrown overboard with a ships anchor around their necks.. baaaahhhh

    • Sounds like you was watching Amistad.

      • Toodle-oo says:

        Movies = artistic license (especially depending on who the producer was)
        This was reality . Accept it.

      • pussy cat says:

        Onion crybaby sounds likevyouv can’t relate to the story at hand take your eying blinders off

      • Come Correct says:

        You watch too much TV. You’re life’s biggest joke of a wannabe historian.

  14. Point boy says:

    Unfortunately only a maximum of 12 months for this offense.
    I’m a firm believer that what goes around comes around!

  15. sage says:

    Remember the guy who tortured and hung his dog a while back, $200 fine. Not expecting much.

  16. Dread says:

    Somerset people… Smh

  17. John boy says:

    Punishment. An eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth justice

  18. trump supporter says:

    Chain them to the lambs, 24/7 for a month!

  19. Hypos says:

    Oh cut the crap!! How can you compare a child to a lamb? That’s why the world is the way it is! How bout educating them, correcting their behaviors? To say they should be treated in the same capacity as an animal shows how long your own fangs are!!! You are the sick ones! Our Bermudian children – reach one teach one! Yes it’s a shame what happened to the animals but you animals here have missed the whole lesson. Let us pray for the adults
    And leaders of this country that we may make this place a better way for our children our futures.

    • pussy cat says:

      and heroes one of the bleeding heart liberals, oh they are really good kids BS

    • Mark says:

      Had to be one idiot with this sentiment; probably related. You can’t fix stupid.

    • Real Deal says:

      these ones are defective i agree they need help but Lord help us if there are more like this out there. mandatory social inquired and treatment. you say “How can you compare a child to a lamb” i think you are not fully aware of how seriousness of what went down. that was not a full grown animal that was not a wild animal ether. the animal was docile and an infant it was a baby. it had no fight in it. it could not even getaway. in nature the mother and father would stand up for it.

      people who behave in this fashion are the same type of people that commit war like crimes when they have power over anything that happens to surrendered to them.

      worst they are the same ethnic group as me and this type of behaving is very uncharacteristic of some of my ethnic group.

      they need to be studied to find out how they came out this way. I would like to study them

    • lav says:

      “Let us pray for the adults”

      Let’s pray for you, you ignorant hypocrite. People like you are the worst….I’m guessing you’re the parent to these low lifes.

    • Trufth says:

      Ok, “Hypo” you are clearly the mommy or daddy of these loser scumbags.

      First of all, congrats on raising a psychopath. Well done. You should be proud of your work.

      Second, people are passionate about different things. Us lot on here, are passionate about animals. It sounds as if you may be passionate about “our Bermudian children.” So how about you go tend to them and stop commenting on something you don’t care about. You aren’t wanted here. You have a huge job on your hands if “our Bermudian children” are your cause. Good luck with that, you have a very long way to go.

  20. Reality Check says:

    The full penalty allowed by the current law is insufficient for this crime . More importantly, taking such pleasure in abusing small animals is a well established warning sign of serious crime in the future . These are not little children .

    • Mark says:

      Charge them on separate counts for each action.

    • MsFedUp says:

      agree 100%. We need more stringent laws re. animal cruelty.

      • Trufth says:

        I agree. Let’s hope the maximum sentences are given here and then, we tackle changing the laws. I know there are some great people who are talking about taking on the task of changing the laws. It has been nearly 45 YEARS since our animal cruelty / torture laws have been looked at.


  21. Kimberley Smith says:

    This behaviour is often a precursor and indicative of a mental health issue.

  22. Dready says:

    Sick puppies! Want to see pictures of them so we know who they are and keep them away from animals!

  23. Deborah says:

    Good news! Can you we give them a taste of their cruelty! Throw them into some stinging nestles! Idiots – and that is exactly what they are! Thankfully I chose not to view the social media video of this cruelty, because my words would have been much harsher!

  24. a real one says:

    These boys should be ashamed honestly disgusting like what the devil were these young ones thinking. This is beyond me. these boys outta be ashamed. but before we get excited the police need to make sure they have the right people and not the wrong because it would hurt my heart that the young guilty idiots are running around here free. We need justice!

  25. TURTLE says:

    So A drug dealer get more time in prison than a Pedophile…So…how much these animal cruelty guys would received? should be an example for other!!!!!!

    • CHRIS says:

      MAX sentence in 1 year. they should get that PLUS they should be thrown in a thorn bush and pushed off a roof, then get their orange jumpsuits.

  26. Seascape says:

    They need help. Putting them away is not going to solve the issue. If they do not get help, they might do worse when they are back out again.

    • CHRIS says:

      Locking them up will teach them about empathy and what it means to be HUMAN BEING! they can get help at Westgate. Let them sit there for 6 mos and think about what they did.

  27. CHRIS says:

    I’ll bet you they are the bullies in school too. Well can’t wait to hear all about their time in Westgate.

  28. Nichole Williams says:

    I would like to take them by One Leg upside down (like the Lamb) Throw him agaisnt the Wall and Hear Him Halla (like the Lamb)…. Throw him in the Cactus Naked; Pick Him Up and Throw him off what looked like a 10 ft. Drop!!!
    I couldn’t sleep after seeing that!!! I HOPE THE COURT HAS NO MERCY ON THESE SAD EXCUSE FOR HUMANS!!! NONE!!!
