Police have arrested and charged a 32-year-old Polish man in an animal cruelty case that involved a pit bull puppy known as "Puppy Doe." The dog was found badly beaten and abused in Quincy, Massachusetts, in late August. Veterinarians tried to keep her alive but her injuries were too serious and she could not be saved.
According to the Animal Rescue League of Boston
, when Puppy Doe was discovered, she weighed less than half what a normal, healthy dog of her size should. The rescue league said Puppy Doe, who was estimated to be about 1 or 2 years old, was starved and routinely beaten, suffering multiple fractures. She also appeared to have burn and stab wounds.
