If he is charged with animal cruelty the chances of him getting Charlie back are virtually non-existant. Ive had occasion to remind people the dangers of attaching a leash or chain to bumpers while they are picnicking...Ive heard more than one sad tale of people forgetting that their companion animal was attached to the vehicle and driving off...only to discover the tragedy after the damage has been done. The story doesnt indicate that was the situation here...especially since he apparently tried to lie his way out of it...what a pos...

The article says that the owner claims to have been HOLDING the leash while driving. If this is so, then he really doesn't have any excuse to have been dragging Charlie because he would have been able to see Charlie next to the truck. Sounds like to me that he doesn't need Charlie back anyway.

Hey I can top that. The town that I live in the TOP COP left his K9 Officer in the police cruiser from 7am antil around 5pm only to discover the dog dead. He calls 911, and resports that the dog is dead. Said he was in the kennel not the car.Investigation later proved that the dog was killed an the car as a result of temps exceeding 140 degrees inside the car. You would think that they would have fired the stupid cop but was choosen as COP OF THE YEAR. And is still a cop today! We've contacted several agencies but no one cares. Any ideas?

The owner seems to be very "limited" in the video. Sick trailer trash.

Tne poor dog, this is really mean. Dogs are so loving, accepting...it would take a special kind of creep to do something like this.

I hope someone adopts and takes care of this poor dog with the care and love that it needs. Drag the man! Good riddance!

You know I never thought that movie was very funny. I know it's just me because a lot of people love it, but I saw it right after I lost my dad to cancer (he was only 53) and when they tied the grandma's body to the top of the car, I just didn't find it funny.

Did you see the picture of this dog with his little paws all bandaged up? So pitiful.
