A Minnesota man is facing animal cruelty charges after he left a hog-tied goat inside of a parked car in New Ulm; the goat did not survive. According to Southern Minnesota News, police in New Ulm were notified of a distressed goat inside of a car that was parked outside of the B & L Bar on August 26.
The victimized goat
By the time that the authorities arrived to the vehicle, the goat was too weak to lift its head and the officers could see that its breathing was labored. The police located the man who owned the goat and by the time they returned to the parked car, the goat had died.
The man’s story
Twenty-eight-year-old Achoge Colins Nwunneh told the authorities that he had purchased the goat on August 25 and that he intended to butcher the animal in a parking stall. After his friends told him that was a bad idea, he left the goat in the car instead.
Nwunneh’s decision to leave the hog-tied animal inside of his car to die has resulted in multiple misdemeanor charges including: overworking or mistreating animals, animal cruelty, illegal animal enclosure, and depriving an animal of nourishment or shelter.
