Probation, restitution ordered in animal case

December 23, 2009


A Lawrence man was sentenced to probation Tuesday for animal cruelty.

Peter Yellowbird, 29, pleaded no contest in Douglas County District Court to one count of animal cruelty, following an arrest in November 2008.

Under the terms of his probation, Yellowbird can't violate the law or possess any animals, prosecutors said. He was also ordered by Judge Sally Pokorny to pay $3,107 in restitution.

I think Yellowbird should be allowed to adopt a cat!

I can't believe that this article even made it in the paper. Some reporters Journal-World has.

I assume the restitution is paid to the Humane Society for their costs.

What difference did it make to classify animal cruelty as a felony if those convicted of it get probation, rather than jail time?

And who is the restitution paid to?

Native Americans, or "injuns", as they like to be called, are the indigenous peoples of America. They got pwned by Columbus during the colonization of America, and -again- during the White Man's expansion from the east of the Mississippi into the West during Operation Manifest Destiny. Their spirits have been crushed ever since. Native Americans are relatively untrollable due to widespread depression about their decimation. Either that or they're too fuuked up on Listerine and don't respond. The Indian reservations don't sell alcohol on Sundays, so an alcohol substitute was created by diluting a bottle of cheap hairspray, usually the 99 cent Aqua Net, in a gallon of water. This beverage in known as 'Ocean' or 'Montana Gin'. When you drink it it makes you want to pass out on the railroad tracks. This usually results in the consumer getting pwned by a freight train. If you're in search of the red, normally you can find them at the beer vendor, spending their government cheques while clutching to their crack babies, bitching about how they live on a reserve yet never make the effort to get a job. Most female injuns become Teenmommies by the age of 13.

Interesting to go back and read Yellowbird's comments to bloggers, thanks artichokeheart.

I think the guy should be put under the same conditions as the dog had. But then we are supposed to beings with a higher functions mentality. I just wish the masses of homosapiens actually had this remarkable mutation of the human brain that is in some.

Maybe he should change his last name.
