HOPE MILLS, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina man is accused of assault and letting his dog freeze to death in unrelated incidents.
The Fayetteville Observer reports 27-year-old Alexander Raphael Grose was charged Wednesday with felony cruelty to animals in the Jan. 8 death of his dog. The arrest warrant in the Cumberland County magistrate’s office says he left the dog tethered to a post with insufficient shelter during the regional cold snap.
He’s also charged with misdemeanor assault inflicting serious injury. Jamal Thomas suffered fractures around his eye, bleeding in the eye and other injuries in the Dec. 25 incident.
It’s unclear whether Grose has a lawyer.
