A man who was caught on tape kicking a dog is donating a huge sum of cash to prevent animal mistreatment.
Des Hague, the CEO of sports catering company Centreplate, will donate $100,000 towards setting up a Vancouver foundation for animal protection and will complete 1,000 hours of community service.
This, after the board of directors at his New York-based company reviewed the incident, in which Hague was caught on tape kicking a Doberman puppy in a downtown Vancouver elevator.
The board says Hague is now also on indefinite probation, meaning he’ll get fired for any more misconduct.
Hague still faces animal cruelty charges.
He has apologized to his clients and employees, saying it was “out of character.”
