(Newser) – A sobbing British dog owner was sentenced to 8 weeks in jail for repeatedly kicking his friendly Staffordshire bull terrier puppy when the dog refused to be goaded into biting one of the teen's pals. The vicious attack was caught on public CCTV surveillance film, reports the Sun. On the video, the pup cowers after being kicked until the owner hoists her up on a wall and punches her in the face so she plummets to the ground. Simeon Major, 19, has been banned from keeping animals for 10 years by a judge who called the violence "appalling."
