A Florida man is accused of causing his dog “severe” injury by tethering him to a tree with a rope. According to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Robert Callahan did not have a proper collar for his dog, Charlie, so he tied him to a tree with a rope, which became embedded in the dog’s neck.

In a release, the authorities described the wound and expressed anger over the cruel situation:

The rope caused a severe, gaping wound to the entire width of Charlie’s neck.
“This disgusting act against an animal has me outraged,” stated Sheriff Carmine Marceno. “This is exactly why my Animal Cruelty Task Force is in place.”

Charlie’s neck required surgery to close the gaping wound. The authorities state:

A physical examination of Charlie revealed the animal was flea-ridden and extremely emaciated.
The veterinarian stated the injuries were consistent with being kept on a rope outside for an extended period of time with no care. Charlie is currently in recovery.

Callahan was booked into the Lee County Jail on a charge of aggravated animal cruelty.
