A Lehigh Acres, Florida, man was arrested and is facing charges for allegedly drowning a dog with a garden hose, and killing a duck and a cat. As reported by NBC 2 News, police in Lee County arrested 46-year-old Jose Ortiz, who was found with the bodies of a dead duck, cat and dog on Monday.

According to a witness, Ortiz was “covered in blood” and cleaning up the remains of a duck on Monday evening – the witness confronted Ortiz and the man allegedly picked up a garden hose, shoved it into a dog’s mouth and proceeded to drown the pup. The witness was able to grab another dog and run away to call the police.

Deputies with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office responded and found a dead duck, cat and dog in a trash can. They arrested Ortiz and he is facing three counts of aggravated animal cruelty. The deceased animals had been bludgeoned and drowned.
