Police in Dallas, Texas are cracking down on animal dumping, and their efforts have yielded them their first arrest.
According to Fox29, the Dallas Marshall’s Office set up a camera near a common dumping spot in Southern Dallas and captured a heartbreaking scene. Video footage from the camera shows a man drive up to the dumping site and pull out a 1-year-old dog out by a leash. He then dropped the leash to the ground and let the dog walk away before getting back into his car to leave.
After an investigation, a warrant was issued and the man turned himself in this Monday.
Gorge Spears is now in the Dallas County Jail facing criminal animal cruelty charges.
The dog has since been adopted.
