A Massachusetts man is accused of a despicable act of cruelty which claimed the life of his dog. As reported by WHDH News, 44-year-old Adam Crook, of Melrose, allegedly dragged his dog to his backyard and proceeded to smash the dog in the head with a rock until it died.
The incident allegedly took place at Crook’s Mount Zion Road residence on Friday night. The police who responded to the home were able to get a search warrant and dig up the slain dog’s body from Crook’s yard.
Melrose Police Chief Michael Lyle commented on the cruelty case, stating:
“This suspect’s alleged actions are absolutely reprehensible and inexcusable. I’m grateful for the excellent investigative work of Melrose Police Sgt. Brian Ladner, Detective Sgt. Paul McNamara, Officer Pamela Daye, and Lt. Alan Borgal of the Animal Rescue League that resulted in this arrest.”
Crook was arrested and then released on personal recognizance; he is due back in court on Nov. 26.
