Xyla, whose owners were deceased, was recovering from the incident while authorities sought a new home for her.

“Stuffed inside the bag, employees found sweet Xyla, a 16-year-old Shih Tzu, with a rope around her neck,” Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno said.

“These heroic employees recognized this to be purposeful abuse and rushed Xyla to Blue Pearl Pet Hospital for evaluation.”

Detectives found Anthony Bellman at the home, “who happened to be wearing the same clothing as the suspect in the footage,” officials stated.

“Today, I’m proud to announce that justice was indeed served upon a selfish and cruel individual, who clearly has no regard for animals,” Marceno said.
