Officers Searching For Man In Connection With Case



BOSTON -- Police in Worcester are investigating what they call a horrific case of animal abuse: a man accused of killing a puppy and torturing another dog.

Police said they are looking for Christopher Devlin, 23, in connection with the case
Tyson, a pit bull puppy that survived the abuse, had severe injuries and had to have the ball joint removed from his hip.

Portions of his front leg were crushed and veterinarians said it will have to be amputated later this month. His broken pelvis will have to heal on its own.

"He's eventually going to need a special home, lots of care and TLC," said Doreen Porter, the executive director of the Worcester Animal League

The dog will be up for adoption in a few months.

Police allege that Devlin threw the other puppy, Ched, against a metal door, causing fatal injuries. When they went to Devlin's apartment to serve him with a warrant, he could not be located.

Police documents said Devlin beat both puppies to discipline them and then let the dogs suffer from their injuries.

"He had so many injuries and we had so little time to react. He was in so much pain for quite some time," Porter said.

Tyson is facing several more surgeries that will be costly for Worcester Animal Rescue.

Another horrific animal abuse case. They probably weren't mean enough. So sad.

I hate to say it, but why is Worcester Animal League wasting their money on a dog who should be put down? You cannot trust a pit bull who has been abused, and who is going to have life long pain problems. Common sense says euthanize this dog and spend the money on salvagable animals.
