Hundreds Mourn "Puppy Doe"
Quincy, Mass (WHDH) - Candles burning late into the evening Saturday as hundreds packed a Quincy field to say an emotional farewell to the dog known only as "Puppy Doe."
"The story is just the worst case of animal abuse I've ever seen and it was just heartbreaking," said Ally Baker who organized the event.
Baker and others are calling for tougher laws and legislation they hope will curb animal abuse.
"In 2012 alone the Animal Rescue League responded to 1500 calls of abuse and neglect to animals," said Mary Nee, President of the Animal Rescue League.
The outrage reached a boiling point for many over the mystery behind who tortured the one year old pit bull.
The dog was found starved and beaten, stabbed in the eye and, cut in the mouth. She had to be put down.
Many who went to tonight's vigil say they hope whoever did it, will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
