Quincy: Polish man charged in beating of “Puppy Doe”

Police say a Polish man who was living in Massachusetts is charged in the torturing and beating of a dog whose plight drew worldwide attention.

Quincy Police Chief Paul Keenan said Monday that 32-year-old Radoslaw Czerkawski was arrested last week in New Britain, Connecticut., on a charge of misleading police and is now also charged with 11 counts of animal cruelty. Keenan said Czerkawski will be arraigned Tuesday in Quincy District Court.

The dog, described as a pit bull type breed, was refered to as “puppy doe”, and was euthanized after being found barely alive August 31 in Quincy.

Massachusetts residents, officials and animal rights activists have demanded stricter laws against abuse. They want legislation that would create a statewide registry of individuals convicted of animal abuse and to impose tougher penalties.
