Dog abandoned outside of animal shelter

Injured dog locked in cage and left behind closed animal shelter

An injured dog, locked in a cage and left in a field, was discovered behind an animal shelter in Midwest City, Oklahoma, last weekend. The dog, a Great Dane, had been left in a field behind the shelter on Sunday – thanks to surveillance cameras, an arrest for the dog’s abandonment has been made.

According to KOKO 5 News, police located and arrested 44-year-old Michael David Scott – the man is facing multi charges, including dog abandonment, driving under suspension, driving with an expired tag and driving without insurance.

KOKO News reports that Scott could face fines and up to 30 days behind bars if he is convicted.

The dog abandoned outside of the Midwest City Animal Shelter is recuperating at a veterinary hospital.

    Thank God for video cameras. They’re becoming more and more valuable in crime cases. I hope this sweet Great Dane makes a full recovery and is adopted into a loving home.

    30 days is a joke for all that, dog abandonment, driving under suspension, driving with an expired tag and driving without insurance? Come on Oklahoma get your act together!

    30 days – why don’t they just shake his hand and send him home? If it weren’t for the cameras this poor dog could have died – I hope Michael David Scott never lives to see 45 – and if I had my way – he sure wouldn’t. Wake up Oklahoma – give this maggot the proper sentence – five years for animal cruelty – 30 days is a joke.
