Genesee County Man Charged With Burning & Torturing His Dog [VIDEO]
A Mt. Morris Township man has been charged with animal cruelty for allegedly burning and torturing his 7-month-old dog.
The dog, whose name is Harvey, appears to have suffered from severe burns. Officials allege Prederick Hurt doused the dog with scalding hot water or chemicals, or set him on fire.
Sheriff Robert Pickell posted photos of the abused animal on his Facebook page. WARNING: The pictures are graphic. We have chosen not to embed them here, but you can see them here, if you choose.
Hurt could also face unrelated charges, as ABC-12 reports he is nearly $200,000 behind on child support for his nine children.
