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.

    The name states it all, no respect for animals. Disgusting excuse for a human, no humanity equals no value for any life

    What gets me is how the officers, instead of getting the goat to a Vet, left the poor thing to go look for the lowlife owner first. They’re almost as bad as he is. The poor goat might have stood a slim chance at least had they acted with their brains first. Laboured breathing doesn’t always mean imminent death – but it does mean get some help pronto. Oh, and the owner was in a bar no doubt cooling off with a cold drink while the precious animal was in torture. I hope he gets to meet the full force of the justice system from the inside, and that the officers get disciplined too.

    OMG: WTF is wrong with people???

    This is absolutely disgusting. How can anyone be so callous and cruel? Additionally, this useless POS is completely lacking in ANY intellect whatsoever!!! WTF was he thinking buying a live goat that he clearly had no concept of proper care protocols…….

    Nice to know this POS will go to prison before he goes to Hell!!!

    This useless shitbag POS should be locked up forever (& lose the keys please). Only leave prison in a pine box….. He has a reserved spot in Hell where he will burn forever for his cruelty……. hope he gets there ASAP after dying alone, afraid, in horrible pain (& worst of all) unloved………

    RIP precious treasure, your life mattered and we hope you get justice……. please look for MacKitty in Heaven and you can RIP amongst loving snuggle buddies…. so sorry that humans failed you so terribly…….
