Posted July 25
Cary, N.C. — A Cary man was charged with animal cruelty over the weekend after authorities said he left his dog outside in the hot sun for several hours.
Authorities said that Thomas Hugh Byrd, 54, of 1419 Ballena Circle, left a 16-month-old Boston terrier named Maverick on a hot terrace without food or water on Saturday.
The dog was taken to a veterinarian Saturday but authorities did not have an update on his condition.
