The lawyer for one of the men convicted over the shooting of 33 dogs is unhappy about reporting on the case.
Tony Campbell and his friend Russell Mendoza have been convicted on firearms and animal cruelty charges.
The judge described Campbell as a gun-happy cowboy who dangerously embarked on a massacre.
She said she couldn't contemplate a more inhumane act than their killing of puppies.
Campbell's lawyer Barry Hart won't comment on what the judge said or the decision, but isn't happy with coverage of the case.
"It's a case that's had a lot of publicity and there's been a lot of adverse publicity that has not helped us even though this a 'judge alone' trial."
Mr Hart says his client is very disappointed, but won't comment on the likelihood of an appeal.
