According to TMZ, Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett is being sued for abandoning his dog which allegedly led to his healthy being destroyed.
We broke the story … Bennett was in deep dog crap with a pet boarding facility in Tampa, FL, where he allegedly LEFT his 4-month-old boxer Koa back in March after he signed with the Seahawks.
The facility claims it made multiple efforts to contact Bennett, but he blew ’em off — so now, it’s taking his ass to court.
In the lawsuit, filed in Florida, the Lucky Dog Daycare & Resort (ironic name for Koa) claims the puppy was so distraught after being abandoned, he “eventually began refusing to eat, losing his hair and clearly failing to thrive.”
There’s more … Lucky Dog not only claims Bennett screwed them out of daycare bills for Koa, but says it also had to pay for “costs of arranging a foster home” for the dog.
Lucky Dog is suing Bennett for a total of $5,000. I’m sure PETA will have fun with this.
