The Animal Rescue League of Boston is offering a $5,000 reward for information in the case of a dog that was tortured so badly, it had to be euthanized.
The pit bull mix was found on Carrolls Lane near a playground in Quincy on August 31 suffering from a number of injuries.
State Rep. Louis Kafka (D-Stoughton) called the abuse “sickening” and said he will file a bill to toughen punishment of animal abuse, which now draws a maximum five years in prison and a $2,500 fine.
“It’s obvious that what’s on the books now, they really don’t know or care what the laws are,” said Kafka, who already is pushing a bill toughening other parts of the animal abuse laws. “I think we have to look at existing penalties, and where they can be increased, increase them.”
Earlier this week, police went public with details of the abuse in an effort to find the person responsible.
Since that time, the Animal Rescue League says it has seen enormous public interest in the story.
“We have been deeply moved by the outpouring of support from people all over the U.S. , looking to help us identify who inflicted such pain and suffering on Puppy Doe,” Mary Nee, president of the ARL said in a news release.
