Authorities Probe Case of Abused Dog in Quincy


QUINCY, Mass. (AP) — Law enforcement authorities and animal welfare advocates are seeking the public’s help in finding the person they say tortured, starved and then left a dog to die in Quincy.

The female dog was found barely alive on Aug. 31, weighing about half what it should.

The animal, described by an Animal Rescue League of Boston veterinarian as a pit bull type dog, was estimated to be between one and two years old.

Veterinarians determined that the dog could not be saved and it was euthanized.

An examination showed evidence of multiple broken bones as well as burns to the nose and stab wounds to the eye.

Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey called the injuries a case of “sadistic cruelty” and said other animals or even humans could be in danger.
