In Merrimack, New Hampshire, a woman allegedly pushed her Golden retriever into a lake and didn’t help the dog as it drowned. Nancy Bucciarelli, 66, was arrested on Friday and charged with animal cruelty.
According to WhdhNews, Bucciarelli shoved the 11-year-old dog into the Naticook Lake. She watched as the dog struggled to swim and drowned within a few minutes. Witnesses tried to help the dog, but were too late. An investigation determined Bucciarelli made no attempt to help her dog in the 3 1/2 feet of water.
Witnesses told police the dog appeared to be elderly and would be easily winded while on walks.
The woman has been released on her own recognizance. She is scheduled to appear in court on June 27.
Rest in peace sweet dog.
