TMZ reports that former UFC fighter Frank Shamrock is under investigation by police after he tied a dog to a truck and abandoned it for five days at the Love Field airport in Dallas earlier this month. He moved to take his mother out of her Texas home and was forced to take care of her two dogs. He told Dallas’ WFAA that he was able to find shelter for one of them. When he couldn’t find shelter for the other, named Zelda, at the airport.

Shamrock said that what he did was “terrible” and he ran away in tears from the dog. However, he added that what he did kept the dog alive.

He said: “Here is what I guarantee, that dog is alive and safe right now and I couldn’t guarantee that before I tied that dog to the truck and left.

Police are now investigating and are considering filing animal cruelty charges against him. Shamrock said he will accept responsibility. The dog is now safe and in the custody of Dallas animal control.

He added: “They can charge me with whatever. I will show up. It is what it is. I’m not hiding in any way. It’s an unfortunate and terrible thing. I’m an animal lover and I ran away crying.
