Tampa man cut up dog for food, stored parts in freezer, police say

Posted: Updated:

TAMPA - A Tampa man has been charged with animal cruelty after police say he strangled a family dog, then cut up its body parts and stored it in the freezer for future meals.

A police statement says Elliot Huggins, 25, was arrested Friday morning on the animal cruelty charge. It was not immediately clear whether he has an attorney, and there wasn't a working phone number listed for Huggins.

Police say after Huggins strangled the young dog, he cut it up into quarters and stored it in the freezer for future meals. A family member called police late Thursday. When officers arrived, they found the dog's ribs cooked in a pot on the stove. The dog's head was in the garbage.

Animal control removed the remains of the dog.
