Trail camera footage led to the arrest of a Greeley, Colorado, man who dumped puppies alongside a road in the mountains. The Weld County Sheriff’s Office issued a release about the arrest of 59-year-old Brent Moss, who abandoned the puppies on a 95-degree day.
The release states:
Greeley man arrested for dumping puppies on Weld County road
A Greeley man was arrested earlier this week after he was caught on camera abandoning two puppies on the side of a county road.
According to the authorities, trail cameras captured Moss dumping two puppies on the side of the road without food, water or shelter in unincorporated Weld County east of Milliken. The release states:
Moss discarded the puppies about 11 a.m. last Saturday and they remained by the side of the road until they were picked up about 6 p.m. by a passing motorist. Temperatures climbed to over 95 degrees that day. At one point, one of the puppies was nearly run over by a delivery truck.
Moss was arrested on Wednesday and he has admitted to abandoning the puppies and acknowledged that the pups would have likely died if not for a good Samaritan who found them.
Moss was booked into the Weld County Jail on suspicion of two counts of aggravated animal cruelty, a felony, and one count of littering, a misdemeanor. He is free on $2,000 bond.
