This is at least the third story of animal cruelty to perform in Estrie since the beginning of the year.

Last February, in Sherbrooke, a man was arrested for having savagely beaten his neighbor's cat with a table leg fitted with a screw at the end. The animal had suffered multiple fractures, but had survived the attack. A few days earlier, in Magog territory, a 75-year-old man had been arrested for asking a friend to kill his dog because he thought he was getting too old.

The friend in question had beaten the poor 13-year-old animal so badly that it had to be euthanized because of its excessive injuries.
