In life having disagreements is just one of those things that we accept in life, after all, everyone is different, but this one guy buried an 18-year-old dog all because of a disagreement…
The guy was reportedly arrested after he buried his elderly dog for not getting along with his cat, did no one tell him that cats and dogs usually are a little apprehensive of each other?
The dog, called Chico, was a Shih Tzu and the guy was 24-years-old, called Richard Piquard, and he buried the dog at the back of his house while he was still alive, poor boy…
The police chief said: – “Even in my 41 years here, I’ve never seen anything like it …We’ve seen other forms of animal cruelty. Burying something alive is a little beyond the reach.”
The guy was said to have the dog for about 18 months after his ex-girlfriend could not keep him where she lived in her apartment.
The woman who found the poor dog buried alive said that Richard sent her a text message on the Sunday at about 11 am that the dog has passed away the night before.
It was just the day prior to this that she recalls he was parading the new kitten he had to her, she thought it was too much of a coincidence.
She said that she found Chico alive under some dirt, he had a rock on top to make sure that he could not get out of the hole he was buried in.
“He yelped in pain, dirt in every part of him…He felt flat like a pancake from the rock weighing him down the hole.”
This poor little dog, she rushed him to the vet hospital, but it was too late, they had to euthanize him, what an awful shame.
Richard was reported to have been charged with one count of cruelty to animals and released on bail to the sum of $1,000.
Was it really enough for something like this? Should we have stricter laws?
