In Fort Walton Beach, Florida a man ignored motorists on Saturday beeping their horns after they saw him dragging his dog by a chain tied to the back of his golf cart. Dean Woodyatt, 79, prevented Good Samaritans from helping the dog after it collapsed.
According to the NFWDailyNews, Walton Beach Police Department stated a witness had to chase Woodyatt down to stop him. The German shepherd died of heat related injuries. The disturbing incident occurred around noon, and when officers arrived at the scene, the dog had been struggling to breathe. He had multiple injuries to all four of his feet.
Woodyatt tried to grab the leash and jump out of the red golf cart and refused to comply with the officers request to put the leash down.
“Officers had to pry the chain out of Woodyatt’s hands and he physically resisted by holding onto the golf cart,” stated the police report.
A necropsy was ordered to determine the reason for the dog’s death.
Woodyatt was transferred to the Okaloosa County Jail.
Rest in peace sweet dog.
