"The suspect was ordered to threaten the nine-year-old canine with a bat to see how it reacted. A second labrador was also called in to face the same experiment to compare the reactions of the two animals. Both dogs are said to have 'flinched noticeably'."

But the jury saw the suspect was really enjoying the experiment in both cases and convicted on that basis....
