Authorities in Winter Garden, Florida, launched an animal cruelty investigation after viewing video of a dog hanging by a leash. According to WFTV News, a man walking his own dogs was shocked when he walked past a home and saw a Chihuahua hanging from the porch.
The man recorded video of the dog and presented it to the authorities – investigators were able to determine that Brian Flowers is the owner of the one-year-old dog. Flowers claims that his dog was “having fun” hanging from the porch, but investigators don’t agree.
In fact, the dog has been seized by animal control and the agency is petitioning the court for ownership. The dog, dubbed “Hey Man” is reported to be doing well at the shelter and is not available for adoption while the case remains under investigation.
