The insanity has seriously taken over mankind these days. People are not ready to understand that animals shouldn’t be treated as objects. Recently, a 23-year-old man in Cobb County was given 10 years of imprisonment for setting dog’s house on fire. The dog was at that time inside the kennel. The man named Caleb Lanier was punished under the act of animal cruelty. Apart from this, he was also charged with the felony for purposely burning his dog’s body more than 60%.

This was testified by Regan Burford, who is a veterinarian who treated the burnt dog. He also mentioned saying that “Royati (dog) should never have survived the abuse she endured or the agonizing treatment she fought through to survive. She remains a silent victim to an unimaginable act of malice, malicious torture, abuse and disfigurement.”
According to the prosecutors, Caleb attacked his brother’s dog with the help of a torch. He sealed the dog house and finally set it on fire.
However, some people do help us restore faith in humanity. Burford himself adopted the injured dog and named her Sweet Potato Fry. How cute is it? He is putting in all the efforts to nurse her.
During the sentencing, Lanier didn’t speak out a word. His family members testified saying that Caleb had a hopeful future; the incident was quite out of place.
Dr Maya Gupta, the psychologist mentions that “There's a 70 percent chance they will commit other crimes in that time span.” Today, the dog is with its new owner. But, as per the vet, the cute little sweet potato fry will have lifetime health issues. We pray that the pooch gets well really quick.
