A Massachusetts man has been sentenced to four years behind bars after admitting to mutilating and killing five pet rabbits during a break-in at a construction company.
The North Adams Transcript reports that Wayne Brackett Jr. accepted a plea agreement Friday that would allow him to go free in two years with good behavior.
Brackett also was sentenced to perform 100 hours of community service at a location other than an animal shelter.
Police arrested the 23-year-old North Adams man after getting a tip from someone who recognized him from surveillance video taken at Berkshire County Construction in June.
Brackett admitted to breaking into the company and killing five of the owners’ 6-year-old daughter’s rabbits. He told police he had been drinking and smoking marijuana and did not remember harming the animals.
