• Man accused of cutting up dog for food

    Updated:

    TAMPA, Fla. - 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 Thomas Elliot Huggins, 25, was arrested Friday morning on the animal cruelty charge. It was not immediately clear if he has an attorney and there wasn't a working phone number listed for Huggins.
     
    Police say once 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 and 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.
