"Framingham man accused of brutally beating his dog" by Andrew Grant Globe Correspondent  May 15, 2017

A Framingham man viciously abused his dog Monday morning for urinating in his house, swinging the animal by its leash, slamming it against the pavement outside, and eventually throwing it into the woods, according to police.

He is now qualified to be President of the United States.

A witness reported seeing Aramis Ortiz, 20, attacking Chaos, the 9-month-old pit bull, at Mary Dennison Playground, Framingham police said. At one point, he allegedly swung the dog “like a parent would swing their child while playing.”

Police arrived at the playground around 7:15 a.m. Ortiz originally denied that the dog was his, but he allegedly later told police that he was angry the dog had urinated on the floor. He said he didn’t want the animal anymore, police said.

The dog suffered facial fractures and is being treated at a local vet, police said.

Ortiz is scheduled to be arraigned at the Framingham District Court Monday.


My printed byline was by Cristela Guerra, and she talked to a Ortiz's lawyer June Jensen (who blames the cruelty on youth!) as well as Dr. Marrianne Martin and Lt. Patty Grigas of the Framingham police. I'm told the dog was found bloodied, wet and covered in dirt near a stream where it was eating grass. He was frightened and skittish. Ortiz was arraigned and released on personal recognizance and not due back in court until August 7!!
