According to Wednesday’s KJAS News, an arrest has been made in the case involving a puppy who was left inside of a mailbox in Buna, Texas. The man believed to be responsible for the cruel act has been identified as 18-year-old Michael Levi Griffin.
Griffin went to the authorities in Jasper County to provide his explanation for what took place. According to a report taken by deputies, Griffin claimed that he found the puppy along Highway 96 and that he put the pup inside of the mailbox, outside of a closed veterinary hospital, in order to prevent him from being hit by a vehicle.
Griffin was arrested on Tuesday and he is facing a charge of cruelty to a non-livestock animal. The puppy, dubbed “Rari,” was adopted by a family who met and fell in love with him. Read more about Rari’s happily-ever-after at this link.
