A man from Red Springs in North Carolina was charged with setting his little puppy on fire. On Tuesday his bail raised from $40 000 to $250 000 due to his arguing with the judge who presides over that case.
A 23-year-old James Franklin Quick was accused of brutal burning his little terrier Cocoa, who was only 7 months old. He was charged for that act with felony animal cruelty.
According to the WTVD News report, despite the fact that the judge warned Quick against defending himself in the court, the man chose just the opposite.
Dominic Clark, the Fayetteville resident, who had been formerly dating with the Quick, had let the dog out for a walk into their backyard on Sunday night. Later she heard some scratching and decided to let the puppy in. When the woman opened the back door she saw terrifying scene of the puppy, which was set on fire. To help the poor animal she smothered the flames with her clothes.
Despite numerous reports that stated those two, Quick and Clark, formerly dated, each of them claimed separately that they didn’t date. Besides, Clark added that she was to move out as she felt no longer being safe in her own home.
Investigators in the case stated, the dog was poured over with the substance that accelerated the blaze.
Cocoa suffered severe burns to her body and face. However, the puppy is currently recovering.
It is possible to make a donation to help pay for Cocoa’s treatment. Those who are interested in making a donation can call the Cumberland County Animal Control Office at (910) 321-6852.
