Lawrence man arrested on animal cruelty charge

October 25, 2012

A 23-year-old Lawrence man was arrested early Wednesday morning at Lawrence Memorial Hospital on a charge of animal cruelty.

Lawrence police spokeswoman Kim Murphree said an anonymous caller reported a dog squealing and lying on the ground in the 800 block of Michigan Street. Animal control officers responded just after 1:30 a.m. and found a yelping dog, which was unable to stand because of a plastic tie, or flex cuff, tied around its back legs.

The dog also did not have any food, water or shelter. Animal control workers removed the plastic tie from the dog, which did not suffer any broken bones, Murphree said.

Police then received a report of a man being treated at LMH for a dog bite. They interviewed the man and arrested him.

The man was booked in Douglas County Jail and released on a $750 bond.

I detest abusers of any kind. Be it animals, or people.

when the LJW finally publishes this guy's name, they should do so in a large font and perhaps leave it on the main page for a day or two.

I'm all for punishment fitting the crime, even if the guy was bitten. He probably did something to aggravate the dog to begin with. So instead of putting him in jail and then letting him go, tie HIS feet and hands up, and leave him on the side of the road to fend for himself. Same thing goes for anyone who physically or sexually abuses a child or an older, vulnerable person. Treat them the same as their victims were treated...

So did the dog bite him before or after he zip-tied its legs?

consumer1; You goin for the record number of lame comments on one subject within a 24 hour period. Not close, not because of the lameness but I'll but Sageie/NancyBoy/TomS would win out on both counts and irrevalence.

People like this make me sick. Why get an animal if you hate them so much. I can only hope that this....."guy" has a crappy life and get some sort of payback for what he did. I hope that this poor dog gets a new happy home.

At least the dog wasn't penned in a cage on top of a car for a 10-hour trip. Now that guy should have been arrested.

I called the police Saturday to a dog left in a car at Kansas Speedway. The dog was in the car for at least 5 hours before I made the call. The cops got there and I left so I don't know what became of the situation. Felt good to make that call because I was tempted to commit a felony and just remove the dog and take it home with me. Idiots don't need pets they need other idiots.

Tie his legs together and leave him by the curb for the trash trucks.
