Nah, I don't think they deserve the benefit of doubt. It's a life we are talking about here. They should be responsible enough to find out the feeding instructions for their pet. If they can't do that, they shouldn't be allowed to keep a dog as a pet.

They should be convicted. It's their responsibility to look after the well-being of their pet. In my country, they'll probably get slapped with a big fine and the pet will be confiscated from them.

I read that article and I suppose it was right for them to be prosecuted. They need to take responsibility as dog owners to care for their dog appropriately and not cause it unnecessary suffering. I know the dog has been returned to them on the promise they will not overfeed him again. I wonder if the dog now has his own social worker???
