Man arrested for tying Chihuahua with electrical and bungee cords and kicking it

In Santa Ana, California, a man was arrested on Sunday for allegedly tying a Chihuahua with electrical wires and bungee cords and then repeatedly kicking the dog like a football.

According to KtlaNews, Santa Ana police received a 911 call from a man who stated a male Hispanic adult had bound a dog’s legs and had been repeatedly kicking him. When officers arrived at the scene near East First Street, they found Jose Manuel Pantoja, 28, standing over the tiny Chihuahua.

The dog had been tied with a bungee cord around his throat and chest. Multicolored electrical wire had bound his legs together. The brown male dog was transported to the Orange County Emergency Pet Clinic for treatment of multiple injuries.

The dog did not belong to Pantoja, who told police the dog had been following him around, and he did not know to whom it belonged. By Monday afternoon, authorities were able to contact the owner and found the dog had escaped from his yard; the owners had been frantically searching for their 13-year-old pet named Max.

On Tuesday afternoon the Santa Ana police returned Max to his family.

Little Max is currently on the mend and is back where he belongs.

Pantoja was taken to SAPD Jail where he was booked for animal cruelty.

    If I wrote here what I was actually thinking it would be censored. But I will point out to these journalists to stop referring to these savage maggots as either a man or woman. They don’t even qualify as human beings. It is perfectly acceptable, from a journalistic point of view, to refer to them as either male or female. And even that alone is giving them far more respect than they deserve. For this inbred savage neanderthal, poster specimen for retroactive abortion, eviscerate it after its gonads are cut off and its little winky is crushed and flattened out. Then gouge out its eyes and take what’s left to an island and dump it.

    This big ugly jerk’s ethnicity is of no interest to me, he’s an animal abuser plain and simple. A normal human being does not hog tie a dog a tenth their size, noose them with bungee cord and kick the daylights out of the poor baby just for “following me around”. Throw the book at him, really hard.
