Man Who ‘Punched Horse’ .. Faces Animal Cruelty Charge
Insanely, all this in protest over NOT wanting to wear a mask in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic in Australia – And it is this sort of deranged and depraved behavior that endangers not only animals, but humanity as a whole.
In posting an opinion the knee-jerk replies presumably (in trolling) in advocation of the crazy anti-lockdown; anti-mask/anti-mask movement “down under” have been interesting, to say the least ..where sheer and irretrievable “ignorance of the law” applies to the definition of just what criminal assault is.
If there is any consolation, Tobruk is doin’ fine and well 👍
The definition of assault varies by jurisdiction, but is generally defined as intentionally putting another person in reasonable apprehension of an imminent harmful or offensive contact. Physical injury is not required.
