CALGARY - A Calgary man who kicked his puppy to death and emailed photos of the dead dog to his girlfriend has avoided jail time.

Derick Colin Anderson had earlier pleaded guilty to "wilfully causing pain or suffering to an animal."

Court heard that in September 2010, Anderson threw the Pomeranian puppy named Cujo from the second-storey of the couple's home, then kicked it to death and put it in a garbage bin.

The Crown had asked for a six- to eight-month jail sentence.

The judge instead gave Anderson a ten-month conditional sentence to be served in the community, as well as a year of probation.
