A Texas man who was seen on video abandoning a 1-year-old dog on the side of the road is facing animal cruelty charges.
Cameras installed by the Dallas Marshal’s Office caught Gorge Spears leaving a dog by the side of the road in southern Dallas on Monday. Spears turned himself in to police after a warrant was issued for his arrests in Dallas County.
“It broke our hearts to see what happened to sweet little Claira-Belle,” said Maura Davies, vice president of communications for SPCA of Texas. “She has found a new and loving home where she can live out the rest of her life.”
The SPCA of Texas said Spears admitted to dumping the dog when he turned himself in, stating his sister wanted to get rid of the dog because she couldn’t control her. Spears could face up to a year in prison and a fine up to $4,000.
Davies added witnesses who saw Spears’ dump the dog helped with the arrest by speaking to SPCA and police.
“It is so important for people to report suspected animal cruelty,” Davies said. “It’s so helpful to have people contact us directly.”
