Dog buried alive in France
An man was arrested by authorities after a photo of a dog buried alive in France was posted on social media. The dog which is a French mastiff was rescued last Saturday August 1 when a man who is walking his own dog saw the buried dog in Carrieres-sur-Seine, west of Paris.
He posted on his Facebook page, the picture of the buried dog with the message, "Only her head was visible and it was difficult to see given the amount of earth covering her."
According to authorities, the dog was buried with dirt and stones and the hed was attached to a sack of gravel to keep the dog tied down.
The man who discovered the dog called the emergency services and began to free the animal. The dog, "shocked and dehydrated" was rushed to a veterinary clinic nearby.
Police traced the owner which is a 21-year-old male and he was taken into custody. He denied burying the dog, saying that the animal had run away. However, investigators doubt him since the dog is more than 10 years old and suffers from arthritis. It's difficult to imagine her running away.
He will be put on trial for animal cruelty and could be sent to prison for 2 years and be forced to pay a fine of up to 30,000 euros ($32,600).
* Stupid cruel people should just kill themselves.....what did this amazing dog have done to you to deserve this. May you rot in prison!
