FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WSVN) -- An elderly man found guilty of allowing his dog to maul a cat is headed to prison.
Hume Hamilton, 82, was sentenced to three years in prison, followed by two years of probation,Thursday morning.
In July, Hamilton was seen on surveillance video along the 900 block of South Andrews Avenue, walking a dog up a driveway where the cat was resting. When Hamilton's dog starts to viciously attack the cat, he uses his foot to step on the cat, trying to separate the two.
The cat died from its injuries.
Last month, a jury found Hamilton guilty of animal cruelty. "Now, we can move on," said the cat's owner, Wayne Spath. "We have closure now, justice has prevailed."
