Colorado man facing charges after leaving dog in back seat of car with muzzle duct-taped shut.

A citation filed at La Plata County Combined Court by the La Plata County Animal Control Department has only one sentence to describe the sentence: “German Shep. type dog found in vehicle with w/its mouth duct-taped shut.”

Reached by phone, Ethridge said the dog is okay and still in his custody.
