TUSTIN, Calif. – A man is facing animal cruelty charges, among several other charges, for allegedly getting his dog high on methamphetamine, heroin and nicotine.
According to a Facebook post by the Tusitin Police Department, police officers in California found Bubba in a motel room in March.
The terrier mix was lethargic and showing signs of being high. Tests showed he had meth, heroin and nicotine in his system. Police say it’s unclear whether the dog ingested the drugs, or breathed in second-hand smoke.
