The owner of a French Bulldog puppy rescued from the garbage in Vallejo, California, has been charged with felony animal cruelty.
A man was charged with criminal animal cruelty after he left a French Bulldog puppy in a dumpster for dying.
Luckily, the puppy was rescued from a dumpster in Vallejo, California.
According to the Solano County Sheriff’s Office, an employee called Animal Control to report a little puppy found in a rubbish dumpster by a customer.
The puppy was unresponsive when Animal Control came. They found, however, that he was scarcely alive, clinging to his final thread of life. The dog was transferred to a local veterinarian, where his condition was stabilized but remains critical. The puppy is presently at the Solano County Sheriff’s Office Animal Care Division, where he will receive the necessary medical attention.
In many situations of animal cruelty, the perpetrator is never found. Fortunately, thanks to the gas station security cameras, authorities were able to locate the perpetrator in this instance. The suspect had gone to the petrol station and then thrown a knotted plastic bag into the dumpster.
When the cops arrived at the suspect’s house, he admitted to throwing away the puppy because he thought it was dead or dying. He stated that the puppy had just developed diarrhea and was “simply dying.” He never stated that he attempted to locate veterinarian care.
Animal cruelty is more common than many people realize. According to PetPedia, an animal is abused every 60 seconds, with dogs accounting for more than 65 percent of all cases. Every year, more than 10 million animals die as a result of cruelty in the United States alone, not including livestock bred for human consumption, which also suffers greatly. Animal abuse is a severe problem that occurs everywhere. More laws are needed to protect animals and bring offenders accountable.
