Man Convicted of Setting Dog on Fire Found Shot in Buffalo


A man who was convicted of animal cruelty in a well-known case involving a Jack Russell Terrier puppy being set on fire was shot on Monday morning on Humboldt Parkway in Buffalo, New York, October 6, 2014, according to the Buffalo News.

Adell Ziegler, 21, had gunshot wounds to his groin and buttocks, and is in stable condition. Ziegler served a short sentence for the October 29, 2012 animal cruelty incident. A dog, who became known as Phoenix, was set on fire by Ziegler and another man, Diondre Brown, 19, and was severely burned. Ziegler and Brown were arrested in November 2012.

Phoenix recovered and was adopted by one of the Buffalo Small Animal Hospital staff that treated the dog. The puppy was completely covered in burns, with third-degree burns on 30 percent of his body. He required skin grafts. He was reportedly abused in the weeks leading up to the burning.

Ziegler had pleaded guilty and got one year in prison, with another year in prison on a parole violation. Brown, who only got six months and a five year probation was arrested in September 2013 for alleged assault on a female.
