A North Carolina dog owner is furious after an assistant district attorney suggested he remove his pet's vocal cords in exchange for dropped noise violation charges.
Owner Michael Eddings said the representative of the Graham County District Attorney's Office proposed the appalling deal during a court appearance on Tuesday, according to WLOS-TV. Eddings is facing noise violation citations over the barking of his seven-year-old Great Pyrenees, Leo.
"He said that if you have the vocal cords removed surgically, they would drop all charges," Eddings told the local outlet. "It's crazy; it is inhumane."
