Travis Dauvin, 33, appeared in Saskatoon Provincial Court for sentencing Friday afternoon.
The 33-year-old man was handed a six-month community sentence order, a 12-month probation period, and an animal probation order for three years.
“I think this is the best possible outcome given the realities of what we had today,” said Aaron Martens, a senior Crown prosecutor in the case.
Dauvin plead guilty Aug. 15 to killing his ex-girlfriend’s dog willfully and without lawful excuse.
It happened in May of 2020 when the small dog bit him and his retaliation caused fatal injuries to the pet.
According to the Crown, Dauvin threw the dog, causing broken ribs, kidney damage and punctured lungs.
