Man gets busted for animal cruelty after chaining up his dog outside during polar vortex

A dog owner living just outside of Minneapolis, Minnesota, has been charged with animal cruelty after his pet was found chained outside during brutally cold temperatures sweeping the Midwest.

Dang Xiong, 29 was cited for the misdemeanor after leaving his dog outside of his Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, home on Tuesday afternoon when temperatures dropped to -9F, according to FOX News.

The shivering canine was found on a short chain outside by police officers who said they also found vomit nearby and very little food and water inside the exposed shelter.

Xiong was hit with a citation for inhumanely, unnecessarily, cruelly beating, injuring or abusing an animal.

The fine can bring a penalty of up to $1,000 in the state of Minnesota. 

Authorities also seized the dog taking it to the Pets Under Police Scrutiny (PUPS) center in Maple Grove, Minnesota, the pet impound facility for several towns in the area, according to Bring Me the News.

‘If it’s too cold for you outside, it’s too cold for your them,’ the PUPS Facebook page reminds pet owners. ‘Like people, cats and dogs are susceptible to frostbite and hypothermia. Please bring them inside!’ 

Xiong left his dog outside during the dangerous polar vortex gripping a large swath of the United States with temperatures ranging from the teens to below zero.

The deadly weather phenomenon has killed at least 13 people since Tuesday, plunging the mercury to as low as -24F in Minneapolis alone.
