CALGARY – A 19-year-old man accused in a shocking case of animal cruelty has been ordered to undergo another 30-day psychiatric assessment.

Nicolino Camardi is accused in the death of a Siberian husky and a cat, both found dead in a Willow Park alley in January.

The animals were found muzzled, and a necropsy determined the husky died from starvation, while the cat was asphyxiated after sustaining traumatic injuries to its head, tail and hind limbs.

Camardi has been charged with two counts of willfully causing unnecessary pain suffering or injury to an animal.

He was ordered to undergo a 30-day psychiatric assessment in May.

On Friday, Camardi appeared in court following the conclusion of that assessment. However, the judge ordered him to return to a psychiatric facility for another 30 days.
