This is Patrick Caleb Land, who beat not one, not two, but three of his girlfriend's dogs to death using what a judge called "callous violence."
The 25-year-old douchebag caused massive internal injuries on the dogs and prosecutors said there was also evidence that they had been suffocated.
His poor girlfriend Natasha Strain told the San Diego court that she "still cries when I think about what happened to my pets."
Deputy District Attorney Garrett Randall said Land called Strain on Sept. 20, 2010, telling her that he had come home to find Josh, her 8-year-old Golden Retriever mix, dead.
Three weeks later, on Oct. 14, Land again called his girlfriend to tell her that he had found her dogs Jackie, a 9-year-old white Shepard mix, and Pikanik, a 50-pound mixed breed, dead in a bedroom.
This time she ordered necropsies on the dogs and a veterinarian determined the animals were beaten to death.
Dr. Monica Clare, a veterinarian, testified at the same hearing that Jackie and Pikanik were each hit a number of times and would have had to be restrained to continue taking a beating.
The defendant's DNA was found under one of the dogs' nails, Randall added.
Sentencing to over five years in jail Judge Charles Rogers said: "These crimes were committed with callous violence and a serious punishment is warranted."
Hope he enjoys jail.
