Boca Raton Man Arrested After Neglected Dog Had To Be Euthanized
BOCA RATON, FL – Boca Post (BocaPost.com) — A Boca Raton man is in jail today after being arrested for a warrant filed by Boca Raton Police Department for a serious animal abuse felony.
Ncholas Amatrone, 27, of Boca Raton, was arrested on animal cruelty charges after his St. Bernard had to be euthanized by the county after being found severely dehydrated on Amatrone’s front lawn.
According to a police report submitted by Boca Raton Police Department, last month, on 1/27/22, officers responded to Amatrone’s home on NE 3rd Ave to find a St. Bernard laying on the front lawn. The dog was found to be overheated and dehydrated. The dog was seized by PBC Animal Control and ended up having to be euthanized the next day due to ‘massive fluid buildup in its stomach and to end suffering’.
The report goes on to describe that the dog was obviously neglected and there was evidence that it suffered for days or weeks. Police say Amatrone has committed aggravated animal cruelty by his failure to act which resulted in the cruel death and infliction of unnecessary pain and suffering to the dog.
