The rotting body of a dog was discovered in a cage at the San Antonio, Texas, home of a man who “went away for work.” On Saturday, police arrested 30-year-old Jose Torres-Vidaurri for the death of a dog, described as a black terrier, who was discovered inside of a wire cage in his apartment, reports KSAT News.

Torres-Vidaurri told the authorities that someone was supposed to be caring for the dog while he was away at work, but he was unable to provide information about that person to the police. The police were tipped off to the dead dog’s presence after a resident complained of a foul odor coming from the unit the Fredericksburg Place Apartments- a maintenance worker made the grim discovery.

Management at the apartment complex told the authorities that Torres-Vidaurri was last seen at his residence on March 18 – by the time that the dog was found on March 25, the body was so badly decomposed that a necropsy was unable to be performed.

    OMG!!! That poor furbaby!!! IMHO anyone who could murder a helpless, trusting furbaby could do the same to a human……
    The disgusting cruel POSs who murdered this precious little treasure MUST be locked up forever (only way to keep all of the rest of us safe), only leaving prison in a pine box. These POSs will burn in Hell forever for their cruelty…… hope they get there ASAP after dying a horrible death alone, afraid, in pain and (worst of all), unloved….. Absolutely NO ?’s about their fate……

    Precious treasure your life was stolen from you (& your life mattered). You absolutely did NOT deserve to be treated so cruelly…… I am absolutely heartbroken for your trauma & death.

    Makes me sick inside to think of this precious furbaby suffering……

    Precious treasure please look for MacKitty in Heaven and he will welcome you into his snuggle buddies group. You can RIP amongst his loving friends……..

      I think the neighbors AND building managers are also responsible for this furbaby’s death. He will was failed by ALL the humans in this building…..
