TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) - A Tampa man is in jail after he killed his dog, then cooked it.
Police say they received a call from a relative that 25-year-old Elliot Huggins strangled the 5-to-6 month-old family dog, then cut up the canine into quarters and stored it in the freezer for future meals.
Officers found the dog's ribs cooked in a pot on the stove. They say the dog's head was in the garbage.
Huggins is charged with animal cruelty.
