Tony Lee DavisSpartanburg, SC – Some people just shouldn’t be allowed to care for any living thing. For example, 33-year-old Tony Lee Davis from North Carolina.

This moron went inside the WestGate Mall and left his 18-month-old bulldog, Thor, in his locked car in 95 degree temperatures. When police officers noticed him, Thor was showing all the signs of heat stroke – heavy panting, rapid breathing, and excessive drooling.

They broke a car window to get the dog out, noting that Thor vomited, his tongue had turned purple, and he was too weak to drink any water the officers tried to give him. At about this time, Davis walked up and was promptly arrested and charged with ill treatment of animals.

Thor was taken to the Spartanburg Humane Society and the CARE Animal Emergency Clinic for care. When he arrived, his body temperature was 109 degrees. It could have been higher, but the thermometer didn’t read any higher than that. He was also suffering from tiny bleeds under the surface of his skin and blindness.

Vets say he could regain his sight if his condition improves, but that his prognosis is uncertain until his brain swelling subsides. Although Thor had seizures and vomited Sunday night, he did neither on Monday. This is a good sign, but vets say the lasting effects of heat stroke can include kidney and organ failure, brain damage, seizures and a higher susceptibility to heat stroke in the future.

Davis has since been released from jail, and has refused to comment on the incident.
