Man Forced to Wear Sign for Animal Cruelty

This is a little creative, but perhaps quite effective for some people...........

Jul 22, 8:26 PM (ET)

HOPWOOD, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania man said he endured more than he expected when he agreed to an unusual sentence for an animal cruelty conviction.

Ulysses Zimmerman, 22, of Point Marion, pleaded guilty to animal cruelty for allegedly neglecting his dog, denying it veterinary care and strangling the animal.

But Zimmerman didn’t pay a fine or spend time in jail. Instead, he stood at a busy intersection in South Union Township Thursday, wearing a sign that read, “I Plead Guilty ... Animal Cruelty is a Crime ... My Dog’s Name WAS Salt and Pepper.”

Zimmerman was supposed to stand at the intersection for eight hours, but Robin Moore, the Fayette County Humane officer who devised the sentence, allowed Zimmerman to leave early because of all the abuse passing motorists hurled at him.

“Everybody started screaming at me and cussing me. I got there at 9:30 a.m., but Robin said at noon that she’d heard enough and that I could leave,” Zimmerman said.

Zimmerman denies he intentionally hurt his pet.
