Mission, TX — Mario Cardona, 59, was taken into custody last week after a video showing him dragging his German Shepard behind his motorized scooter surfaced on Facebook.

The woman responsible for posting the video, Michelle Torrez, was heading out to run errands Thursday, when she spotted Cardona motoring down the sidewalk, the pup struggling as it was being dragged.

“I turn around. I see him dragging his dog from the middle of street. … I’m out of my car yelling at him, asking him, ‘What are you doing? What’s wrong with you?’ And he just keeps going, telling me to mind my own business, it’s his dog he can do whatever he wants,” Torrez claimed.

Torrez whipped out her phone and started recording. After calling the police, Torrez posted the video to her profile, where it quickly received thousands of views.

Cardona was arrested less than 24 hours later. He’s been charged with animal cruelty, and bond has been set at $10,000. His priors include assault, driving while intoxicated, criminal mischief and possession of cocaine.

The pup, a female named G2, is said to be in good health but remains in the custody of Mission Animal Control. The video, which is shown in this news clip, may be disturbing to some.
