GONZALES- Deputies made an arrest following a WBRZ News 2 report about a dog found taped-up and dead in a field.

Jacob Blackwell, 25, was booked on charges of cruelty to animals.

Investigators said Blackwell kicked the dog to death when it was being "uncooperative," and bound the dog's mouth, legs, and neck with electrical tape and left it in a field.

Deputies believe he was hoping it would appear that someone else killed the dog and abandoned it off Black Bayou Extension Road.

The discovery was made Sunday. Blackwell was arrested Wednesday.
