PA man tortures puppy, judge allows him to own more animals
GREENTOWN, PA – A man in Pennsylvania who was served jail time and paid a fine for abusing hid dog will be allowed to own more.
Russell Seese, 27, admitted he wrapped duct tape around his Labrador-pit bull mix puppy’s muzzle, then bound her front and back legs together. He put her in a dirty chicken coop without food or water and planned to shoot her.
Prosecutors asked a judge to prohibit Seese from owning any pets or working with them. Seese’s attorney argued it was an excessive punishment since he had no history of animal abuse.
The dog is now recovering in a shelter and will be adopted out.
