Black man arrested to setting his dog on fire which led to burned his eyes and body
Black man arrested to setting his dog on fire which led to burned his eyes and body in Arcadia. He was booked into the DeSoto County Jail. A warrant was issued by the state attorney’s office for Wallace’s arrest, Arcadia police Lt. Gary Evans said. He was arrested at his home, which he shares with about three relatives. Evans said Wallace was compliant, but surprised at the arrest.
Wallace owned the dog for less than a year, and there are initial reports of juveniles stating the dog was on fire. No other animals were found at the home.
As veterinarians wrapped hope in full-body. The bandages showed signs of significant improvement as tender pink tissue crept back into her thick black fur coat. After months of medication and therapy, Hope is expected to make a full recovery. When Hope’s corneas burned, they filled with fluid and began melting, said Dr. Tammy Miller-Michau, the dog’s ophthalmologist. In her first week at Blue Pearl, Hope got eye drops every hour around the clock due to concerns about both eyes rupturing.
