Crawfordville, Florida – Nathaniel Harris, 39 faces animal cruelty and abandonment charges after his brindle colored bulldog died of strangulation and heat stroke. Officer Keith Blackmar, of the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office made the announcement earlier today in a printed news release.

Harris allegedly left his dog with no food or shelter on July 29 and July 30 when temperatures ranged from 95 to 98 degrees. The dog was chained to a post with a nine foot chain which weighed fourteen pounds. The animal’s neck injuries were consistent with being chained and trying to struggle to free himself.

Harris had moved out of the Metcalf Road home three weeks earlier and apparently abandoned his dog although there was a bowl of water near the dog’s dead body.

Harris was arrested on August 17 on non related charges in Leon County and will now face animal cruelty charges.

The dog was found dead at the subject’s home chained to a post with a 14 pound, nine foot long logging chain that entangled the dog to the post. Nathaniel Harris was charged with two misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals and abandonment.

The dog did not have food or shelter near where he was chained and ultimately choked itself to death with the chain. A bowl of water was discovered near the animal that appeared to have been recently placed there.

The original complaint was received July 30 and detectives and an animal control officer determined that the dog had been dead for approximately 24 hours. It was determined that Harris moved out of the Metcalf Road home three weeks prior and left the dog behind. Temperatures ranged between 95 and 98 degrees on July 29 and July 30.

The animal suffered a large injury to his neck consistent with being chained up and struggling with the tangled chain.

Harris was arrested Aug. 17 for driving with a suspended license. He was released from the Wakulla County Jail on Aug. 19 to face charges of grand theft, petit theft and dealing in stolen property in Leon County. He was incarcerated in the Wakulla County Jail at the time of the investigation. Leon County has placed a hold on Harris to return to Wakulla County and face the most recent charges.

“A dog can be a man’s best friend,” said Major Langston. “Isn’t it a shame that a man can be a dog’s worst enemy!”
