In Dallas, Texas, UFC legend Frank Shamrock has admitted to tying a dog to the bed of a pickup truck at Dallas Love Field and walking away. Police were called after a concerned man reported he saw a dog tied up in the bed of a pickup truck that had been there for five days.
According to WFAA News, Shamrock left his mother’s dog, Zelda at Love Field because he couldn’t find a home for the dog. His mother was no longer able to care for her dogs; one of the dogs had been rehomed, but Shamrock stated no one wanted Zelda.
“They can charge me with whatever. I will show up. It is what it is. I’m not hiding in any way. It’s an unfortunate and terrible thing. I’m an animal lover and I ran away crying,” Shamrock said.
The seven-year-old dog Zelda is a Labrador retriever mix, and when found she was malnourished, but has since recovered. It is not known what will happen to her.
It is expected Shamrock will be charged with a Class A misdemeanor for abandoning an animal without making reasonable arrangements for her care and custody.
