A 70-year-old man in Forsyth County, Georgia, is facing a charge of felony animal cruelty for allegedly dragging a dog behind his truck. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the suspected animal abuser is identified as Emory Junior Samples; Samples was arrested on Monday afternoon.
The authorities tracked Samples down after receiving reports from witnesses who were able to get the license plate number from the accused man’s truck. The victimized dog was located “in the woods” and required veterinary attention. The dog’s current condition is unknown.
According to reports, the dog is believed to have gotten loose from Samples’ property and he apparently opted to make the dog run behind his truck to get home, rather than putting the dog inside of the vehicle.
