Dog Found In Ditch With Muzzle And Feet Bound With Electrical Tape

Officers in Missouri have arrested a heartless man who bound a Dachshund’s mouth and feet with electrical tape, and then tossed the dog in a ditch in freezing temperatures.  

The little dog was found shivering during a ditch 12 hours after the incident occurred. The officer was heartbroken to find out all the electrical and adhesive tape wrapped around the dog’s feet and muzzle. The front and hind legs were bound together so, he couldn't move. His muzzle was sealed with duct tape and it's a miracle he survived.

The monster tossed the dog out his window and into the ditch after he bound him with tape. The temperatures were just above zero when the small dog was found. Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office released a press release saying Paul Garcia was arrested and charged with felony animal abuse and armed criminal action charges. His bail was set at $50,000. “We now have a topic in custody for this crime due to the patrol deputy, skilled crime scene technicians, fingerprint examiners, and detectives.”

Jimmy, because the dog was later named, was delivered to an animal hospital for treatment. “He was cold, starving & possibly had a concussion,” tweeted Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office. The tough boy is getting better. A video shared on Facebook captured him wagging his tail and twiddling with the medical staff. “This may be a check out him at the animal hospital where he’s being treated.”

Officers made a plea on social media trying to find the dog’s owner. Katie Kofron, the dog’s owner, saw the photo and knew it had been her missing dog “Flick.” She told the Sheriff’s office that her 13-year-old dachshund disappeared from her backyard. Fingerprints on the electrical tape were matched to Garcia. The general public is demanding he's given the utmost sentence for his heinous crime.
