Man accused of burying dog alive

Man accused of burying dog alive

A Massachusetts man is accused of a despicable act of animal cruelty – allegedly burying a dog alive. According to multiple sources, 24-year-old Richard Piquard buried a Shih Tzu dog while the canine was alive – the dog was found in Northbridge on Sunday.

The buried dog’s fate

Though the dog was rushed to Tufts Veterinary Hospital, humane euthanasia was determined to be the only option. The Northbridge Police conducted an investigation into the cruel situation and they were led to Piquard. It is unclear what linked the man to the buried dog.

Piquard was arrested, but released after posting a $1,000 cash bail. He will be arraigned in Uxbridge District Court for a charge of animal cruelty.

    He needs to be buried alive. A fine isn’t enough. He will most likely escalate to a life of violent crime. There is a direct correlation with animal abuse and serial
    killers, serial rapists and pediphiles. Don’t waste taxpayers money on jail time. Death penalty is warranted here !

    Only animal cruelty charges? How about a felony charge since the poor dog had to be euthanized. Do the same to this vile sub human and bury him in the ground alive but no one find him, or just euthanize him. Do this country a favor and start getting rid of these vile monsters who do such horrible things to defenseless animals.What will the justice be for this dog?

    $1000 bond? Is that all? Why aren’t they taking this seriously? The b*****d should be locked up and kept behind bars so he can’t hurt anyone else again!

    This will not stop until the time that the courts & judges take this seriously. What is so hard to comprehend??? IF a monster is CRUEL and SADISTIC enough to harm an animal…..just think what they CAN and WILL eventually do to another person?
    Animal abuse should be a MINIMUM of 5 years imprisonment and $5,000 fine + reimbursement of any medical costs. Death of an animal from abuse should be a minimum of 10 years imprisonment and $10,000 fine. Or better yet, bring back hanging and/or the electric chair JUST FOR ANIMAL murderers!

    Buried a dog alive and got out of jail for $1000? Unfuckingbelievable! Unconscionable. Outrageous. This man needs to be charged with multiple animal cruelty charges and remain in jail until his trial. What a scum sucking, bottom feeding POS. Evil resides in this “human.”
