    A Missouri man wrapped the legs and mouth of a dachshund with duct
    tape before dumping it in a ditch where it remained for 12 hours in
    freezing temperatures before being rescued, authorities said.

    The suspect, identified as Paul Garcia, 39, threw the dog from his
    vehicle in Jefferson County, a Thursday release from the Jefferson
    County Sheriff’s Office read. He faces felony animal abuse and armed
    criminal action charges and was being held on $50,000 bail.

    A sheriff’s deputy found the black and brown dog – named “Jimmy" by
    workers at the hospital where he was taken -- while on patrol Saturday

    The dog had been wrapped in duct and electrical tape and was cold,
    malnourished and may have suffered a concussion. Temperatures were in
    the teens the night before he was rescued, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

    The deputy kept the electrical tape, which was then frozen by
    investigators to lift fingerprints.

    Garcia, who was not the dog’s owner, came up as a match. Jimmy is
    being cared for by Jefferson County Animal Control and investigators
    are searching for his owner.
