NATCHITOCHES, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Wednesday, a Natchitoches man was sentenced for his conviction of aggravated animal cruelty to animals.
Zwerick Hudson was given the utmost sentence, 10 years in jail and a $10,000 wonderful, for his severe cruelty case. In 2020 he was convicted after mutilating and killing a small canine along with his naked palms.
“This is one of the most egregious cases of animal cruelty I have seen in our parish. Usually, animal cruelty cases relate to malnutrition or neglect. However, in this case, it involved an unprovoked violent and cruel attack on a harmless small dog in the presence of its owner,” stated District Attorney Billy Joe Harrington.
Hudson’s two-day trial ended on March 30. His preliminary sentencing had been set for May 2.
