According to Portsmouth Circuit Court records, Bobby Theriault, 25, of Lyman, Maine, committed the crime of animal cruelty on July 6, 2011. The complaint was filed with the court on April 12 and alleges Theriault did purposely mutilate the guinea pig by sticking a steak knife into the right side of its body causing critical injuries.
Theriault was a resident of 410 Sagamore Road in Rye at the time of the alleged incident, according to court records. On a police bail slip, he notified the court that hed rented an apartment in Rye for two years but was a lifelong resident of Maine.
Following his arrest, Theriault was released after posting $500 cash bail.
Rye police could not be reached for comment Friday for details about the allegations.
Do you condone torturing animals or did I misunderstand your post??
I know! I’ve subscribed to some pet/dog page on Facebook and every day they post some horrible abuse story or two or three! New ones every day! Today was about some evil girl that killed her roommates kittens with her hands. I think with some of these cases, drugs are involved. It’s making young people evil and insane.
I can’t imagine hurting a baby animal,or any animal for that matter. I love animals so much and hearing about their mistreatment is like a knife in the heart.
I know how you feel. I don’t get it either.
We have had a rash of people setting animals on fire lately.
I don’t get it. Why???
If I got my hands on these abusers....
Guinea pigs, hamsters and gerbils..all very fun to have.
I had all and even white rats for a while...very intelligent animals.
Yep, they are fun to watch drink.
And run in their wheels,especially the balls that can roll across the floor. Then there are the clear tubes that connect to make a tunnel of sorts.
I had gerbils!
They were cool, spazzy little bundles of kinetic energy.
I was just a youngster and liked to pretend they were tiny knagaroos.
I loved how they would sometimes stop whatever they were doing and really, *really* ~look~ at you.
It was so cute..and a bit unnerving....LOL
Can you write that in a note and hand it to hubby?
My critter-centric outlook is driving him nuts...LOL
[*so what* if the goats run into his machine shop “yelling” every time they know I’m out there? they’re just thrilled to see me...I’ve got pockets full of animal crackers!]
So am I.
There aren’t many people in my ‘real life’ who are very much into critters.
That’s why I miss my gramma....she’s where I got it from.
She’s been gone almost 30 endless years.
I really miss her.
I can close my eyes and see her walking around the farm with a parade of chickens, cats, dogs, cows, ponies, ducks and guineas following her, plain as day.
Every lost or injured thing came to her house for help, same as they do mine, now.
The rest of the family got all her material stuff when she died but I inherited her best thing of all.
I had five of them and it always cracked me up when I went into their room.
They’d whistle at me like construction workers....LOL
There’s killing—and then there’s torture.
I have 4 fancy rats now.
[I used to have a rat rescue but that’s another *long* story]
I love to give them Cinnamon Toast Crunch because it looks like they’re eating tiny little sandwiches.
I have a Black Irish, a Black Berkshire, a Champagne and an Agouti.
They have a four story rat condo.
They all like to sleep up on the top deck which is about 7 feet off the floor.
I don’t condone arresting anyone for killing their own guinea pig, mouse, rat, turtle.
Ever been to a farm?
Cinnamon Toast Crunch? That’s cute. They must love that!
Have you ever owned a tarantula? I held one at a pet store but I didn’t buy it. Tarantulas don’t scare me but the average house spider freaks me out.
I would LOVE to hold a baby animal and bottle feed it.
It’s like they can read your mind!
They make condos for rats?
I’ve been on the rescuing end of several pre-weaned babies of different varieties. It’s pretty fulfilling...but a heck of a lot of work.
The baby mammals are tough...but the birds are tougher. Their little beaks are always open crying for more and more!
