DARTMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — Police say a Massachusetts man has beaten a dog with a baseball bat and has been arrested.
Dartmouth police say they responded to a report of a man abusing a dog with a baseball bat in a vehicle Friday. They found 50-year-old Gregory Ostiguy, of New Bedford, beating a dog.
NECN reports an investigation found Ostiguy did strike the dog, and he has since been arrested and charged with animal cruelty.
The dog is in the care of a veterinarian and is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
An attorney for Ostiguy could not be immediately identified.
