In­jured dog found buried alive in Mon­treal has died

Cape Breton Post - - Canada -

The So­ci­ety for the Preven­tion of Cru­elty to An­i­mals says an in­jured dog found buried alive on Mon­treal’s South Shore has died.

The Mon­teregie SPCA said in a Face­book post that the dog, a Boxer mix, was ex­tremely de­hy­drated when it was first brought in for care on Tues­day and couldn’t even lift its head.

The SPCA said that the dog ap­peared to be in sta­ble con­di­tion, but it took a turn for the worse on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon and died.

Linda Robertson, the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s di­rec­tor, says the pup was spot­ted by a man walk­ing in a field in Saint-Paul-D’Abbotsford — he heard a whim­per and saw a dog’s paw stick­ing out of fresh top­soil.

Robertson says the man dug the an­i­mal, which had been wrapped in a sheet, out of the ground, adding it’s un­clear how long the dog had been un­der­ground.

She says it ap­pears the dog was stran­gled and hit on the head with a blunt ob­ject.

“This is the first time we’ve had a sit­u­a­tion where a dog was buried alive,” Robertson said.
