[quote]MONSONâ€” A man was arrested after a dog was so badly maimed with a chain saw in a home yesterday that it had to be euthanized.
Randall R. Mason, 41, of 84 Town Farm Road is accused of inflicting deep cuts with the saw on the dogâ€™s front paws, head and hindquarters. The dog was a German shepherd mix owned by another resident of the home.
Mr. Mason was charged with animal cruelty and ordered held on $10,000 bail at his arraignment yesterday in Palmer District Court.
According to a police report, officers were called to the home about 1 a.m. after a baby sitter there awoke to the sounds of a whimpering dog and a running chain saw.
She said she went into a common area of the house, discovered a large amount of blood and found the pet dog bleeding from its wounds. She wrote in a statement to police that she used towels to try to stop the bleeding. The dogâ€™s front paw was dangling, she wrote.
Officers arrived to find the dog still alive, but because of its severe injuries it was euthanized at Boston Road Animal Hospital in Springfield, after its owner, Jason V. Wemette, also of 84 Town Farm Road, was consulted, according to Police Chief Stephen Kozloski.
Police photos depicted the bloody dog and Mr. Mason with blood smeared on his arms and shirt.
Mr. Wemette was at work when the incident occurred. He could not be reached for comment yesterday.
Mr. Mason told police the dog â€œfreakedâ€
Never make someone a priority in your life when that someone treats you like an option.
