NC man charged with burying his dog alive
SHELBY, N.C. (AP) – A Cleveland County man is facing animal
cruelty charges after police say he tried to bury his dog alive.
The Shelby Star reports that 38-year-old
Sean Davis of Kings Mountain was arrested Monday by sheriff’s
County Animal Control Supervisor Tripp Bowling says Davis had
become convinced his dog had been poisoned. Bowling says the man
buried the German shepherd mix’s head in a shallow hole and packed
its nose and mouth with dirt.
Animal control officers took the dog to a veterinarian, but it
had to be euthanized. Bowling says the animal was too dehydrated to
test whether it had been poisoned.
Davis is being held in the Cleveland County jail on a $10,000
bond. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
