Owner abandons his two Great Danes after moving out of apartment

An Elmont, New York man allegedly abandoned his two Great Danes in an apartment after he moved away. Mian Siddique, was arraigned on Friday and charged with two misdemeanor counts of overdriving, torturing and injuring animals. He also was charged with two counts of animal abandonment.

 

According to NbcNewYorkNews, the two dogs were in horrible condition; one of the dog’s died after vomiting pieces of fabric he had eaten to stave off his hunger.

 

Siddique moved out of his apartment on January 1; the dogs were discovered on January 14 after Hempstead Animal Control went to the premises on a welfare check. The two dogs, named Sheru and Maverick had been left in the basement and were more than 40 pounds underweight. Veterinarians estimated the dogs had been severely neglected for at least two to three months.

 

“The defendant allegedly moved out of his apartment abandoning his two Great Danes to die of dehydration and starvation,” District Attorney Madeline Singas posted in a statement. “Every dog deserves a caring  and loving home, and when pet owners abuse their animals, we will hold them criminally accountable.”

Sheru suffered the most. Besides dental disease and pressure sores all over his body, when discovered the dog was barely able to stand. He died as a result of the egregious neglect. Maverick had hair loss and dental disease but was able to recover. He has since been adopted.

Siddique faces the maximum of a year in prison and a $1,000 fine.

      How do you know that he’s a Muslim and not a Hindu (or even a Buddhist)? I believe he’s an Indian, so he very easily MIGHT be a Hindu.

      Also, how the HELL do you know that he hasn’t been in this country his entire life, and that his family hasn’t been here for GENERATIONS? There are many people here whose families are from that part of the world, you know, and were even at the time of the Revolution, even if he were a Muslim.

      God, what I hate is the politicians. media (Fox, Rush, etc) and people that are responsible for the ignorance and racism I see in your comment.

        Well put maxiemom! Our present administration is bringing out the worst in our citizens. Seemingly it is ok to bully, and chastise someone who isn’t your race, creed or religion. I was raised that we all are equal and to judge by the person’s deeds. It’s heartbreaking to see so much hate in our country.

      I second your comment – Siddique should be shipped back to his third world country hogtied to a leaky raft – one year and a thousand dollar fine is a slap on the wrist for the pain and suffering he caused two innocent dogs – due to his neglect one died – and this piece of crap punishment should be MUCH more severe.

      Hardly a punishment a District Attorney that says “Every dog deserves a caring and loving home, and when pet owners abuse their animals, we will hold them criminally accountable.” should be handing out. What a joke!

    I do not understand. People love Great Danes and they almost certainly would have been adopted, even from a kill shelter. All he had to do was drop them off or contact a Great Dane rescue and let them know where the dogs were. A year in jail and $1000 isn’t nearly enough punishment. I hope karma gets him good!

    If there is anybody on here that lives in NY YOU need to advocate for stricter penalties for animal abuse in your state otherwise it won’t get done! This maximum sentence is a joke! RIP pup.

      I live in New York State and actually, our politicians are more concerned with anything BUT animal welfare. We get a puppy mill shut down and another community will let a new one open up (tax dollars). We can advocate all we want, and nothing still gets done.

    I like District Attorney Madeline Singas’s statement. “Every dog deserves a caring and loving home, and when pet owners abuse their animals, we will hold them criminally accountable.” Well District Attorney Madeline Singas, how about making the punishment more severe, 1 year and a $1,000 fine for starving 2 dogs doesn’t cut it! Until our legislators start taking animal abuse seriously, these thugs will continue to get away with this!
