A dog who was unable to walk was dragged by her owner in Simpsonville, South Carolina – according to Monday’s Fox Carolina 21, the dog did not survive. The dog’s owner, identified as Christopher Lee Thompson, now is facing a charge for ill treatment of animals.
Thompson’s cruel actions on July 18 resulted in his dog’s death – according to the authorities, the dog, a female pit bull, died of heat stroke on the 85-degree day. Police contend that Thompson’s actions were committed “knowingly and intentionally.”
Thompson has been arrested – no word on when he will have to appear in court.
Dogs owned by careless owners have been paying with their life this summer – recently, a dog who was desperate to reach shade choked to death in Great Falls, South Carolina (read here) and two dogs (belonging to two different owners) died in Toledo, Ohio, because they were left to suffering in the heat (read here).
