Man Finally Sentenced 8-10 Years In Prison For Torturing Abandoned Dog To Death



The 37 years old Polish, named Radoslaw Czerkawski, has been sentenced 8 to 10 years after being convicted of abusing a dog so badly it had to be put to sleep. It's already been passed five years after the dog - which hit headlines under the name 'Puppy Doe' - was found abandoned.

Puppy Doe, a one-year-old female mixed pit bull was found in 2013 in a park starving with a stab wound to the eye, multiple fractures to her skull and spine and a split tongue.

The poor dog, named Kiya, a one-year-old female mixed pit bull was found in 2013 in a park starving with a stab wound to the eye, multiple fractures to her skull and spine and a split tongue.

Kiya captured the hearts of thousands of social media users who demanded that her previous owner be found and charged.


Czerkawski came to the United States in 2008 on a student visa. He was already in prison for unrelated convictions. He was handed a sentence of three to five years in 2015 for stealing more than a hundred thousand dollars from an elderly woman he was caring for.

In the court of Massachusetts Radoslaw has been convicted for animal cruelty and is going to face 8-10 years behind bars, two years probation and is obviously banned from owning or coming into contact with any animals.

After his sentence is served, he will be deported back to Poland.

Animal Rescue League President Mary Nee told Patch the court's decision was 'historic' and said it will help usher in stronger animal welfare laws.

She said: “Today was a historic day for animal welfare in Massachusetts. With the conviction and sentencing of Radoslaw Czerkawski, it has been demonstrated that people who commit animal cruelty, and in this case extreme cruelty, will be held accountable.

Ironically Puppy Doe’s short and tragic life was the impetus for stronger laws protecting all animals in the Commonwealth–and there’s still more work to do.”
