Convicted Dog Abuser Stephen Barry King now operating in Reno, Nevada

I wanted to draw your attention to the fact that Stephen Barry King who was convicted twice of animal cruelty in the UK in 2002 is now back in the USA =B4training=B4 dogs, this time he is operating in Reno, Nevada area and calling himself Barry King.
I thought you might be interested and appalled to see his new website and an item published this week in a Nevada newspaper.

Stephen Barry King is originally from Portland, Oregon.

If you read the item then according to King he has managed to adopt a dog from the Nevada Humane Society, an organisation which is surely designed to protect animals.

And to help you with the history of the King story:

Stephen King was convicted twice in the UK for animal cruelty in 2002 and banned from having contact and custody of dogs for 8 years. His trials were heard at Marylebone Magistrates Court and Camber Well Magistrates courts, both in London.
