A man is in hot water for his extraordinarily poor choice to leave a young puppy inside of a locker while he toured a gym in Atlanta, Georgia. According to multiple sources, the man (who has not been named) was taking a tour of an LA Fitness business, so he decided to leave his two-month-old puppy stashed in a locker.

The man’s explanation

As reported by WTHR News, the man has defended his decision to lock the puppy up – he told the news agency, “I didn’t just throw it in there and then left her. I made sure that it was comfortable. I had left a couple, like, shirts and jeans where she can lay down or something comfortable and I left some dog food also in there so she can eat and you know, lay down.”

Nice try but you are still being charged

Though staff at the gym was able to get into the locker and rescue the young pup, the man is still in trouble. As reported by CBS 46 News, he was ticketed for cruelty to animals. Unfortunately, the puppy was sent home with him.

    Unless you have intelligence and compassion don’t have pets. Plain and simple. Dumbasses and inbreds have no business being around animals.

    Unbelievable! They sent the puppy home with him? What kind of idiots are these police officers? He got a ticket which won’t amount to anything and I can’t imagine what is going to happen to this poor puppy!

      Exactly! A hot locker! I wish they would stuff him in a hot locker with no water. Wonder what business he had? Didn’t anyone notice when he brought a little dog in? Probably a Vick fan. Cvs the believe the police did nothing and gave the idiot the puppy back. He said “it” not even calling the little one by a name. Where’s BLM at when it comes to puppy’s rights! Animals lives matter too!

    This idiot needs a dose of his own medicine – stuff his useless butt in the same locker and walk away – some people have the brains of a doorknob and he is a the prime example of one.

    How in the world would they have given this sweet puppy back to this idiot owner? How cruel to lock the puppy in the locker, what will stop him from leaving him and a hot car or other abuse!
