On March 17, Antonio Ray, 37, allegedly dragged a pit bull from his bicycle through the Ardmore, Oklahoma city streets. Many witnesses called police, and one took a picture of the incident using his cell phone. A witness described the horrifying scene, “[The dog’s] arms were behind it, its chest was on the ground and there were streaks of blood. And we went back afterwards and measured it, four-tenths of a mile he dragged this dog. The pads of its feet were gone and it was laying in a pool of blood." Authorities took the tortured dog to a nearby animal shelter, but he died before he could be treated.
Police arrested Ray and charged him with animal cruelty. A police press release details the incident. Court records show Ray has a history of domestic abuse, drug offenses, weapons offenses and DUI.
Locals may support the prosecution by attending court proceedings. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 31, 2009 at 9 a.m. with Judge Tate. Always contact the Court to confirm court dates as they are subject to change. To check the status of a court date, call:
