Man Charged With Killing Puppies Found in Trash Bag

Jason Gentry is being charged with two counts of animal cruelty and two counts of malicious killing of an animal

A Massachusetts man charged with the murder of two puppies which were found in a trash bag is free on bail after his arraignment Tuesday.

Thirty-four-year-old Jason Gentry of Swampscott left Chelsea District Court after posting $1,000 bail following his arraignment on two counts of animal cruelty and two counts of malicious killing of an animal.

The two dead puppies were found in a trash bag behind a gas station in Revere last November.

Police say they were 20-week-old mixed breed puppies known as a Donovan Pinscher. They had no visible wounds, or collars for identification.

A second man, Dominic Donovan of New York, facing charges was also arrested Tuesday afternoon.

Police in Revere say Gentry was operating a dog kennel where he held and trained these Donovan pinchers in Lynn, Massachusetts. The kennel has since been closed and Lynn police expect charges to follow.

The incident remains under investigation.
