US: 25-year-old man held for chopping puppy, cooking its ribs

Washington: A man in the US state of Florida has been arrested for allegedly strangling a family puppy, chopping it into pieces and cooking its ribs on a stove, police said.

Thomas Elliot Huggins, 25, was arrested earlier this week after a family member called police in Tampa, a media report said on Sunday.

When police arrived, they found the dog's ribs cooked in a pot on the stove. The dog's head was in the garbage.
