Last Tuesday, 7 News Denver interviewed the Denver, Colo., man who was captured in a photo driving away from his dog who he had just dumped outside of the Denver Animal Shelter.

Daniel Sohn offered an odd, some may say strange, excuse for his behavior, and he showed no remorse for driving away from his dog, who can be seen in the photo chasing after his owner's vehicle - he told 7 News:

Well I didn't ditch him. I actually dropped my dog off at the shelter where I did pick him up at. I actually gave my dog a choice if he wanted to be with me or possibly find an owner he might feel better with,"

Sohn tried not once, but twice to get rid of the German shepherd - witnesses claim that he ran out of the animal shelter after being asked to fill out paperwork. Sohn was observed speeding away and witnesses allege that he actually hit his own dog as he left.

Sohn stated:

I didn't accidentally hit him,"

He jumped in front of my car but I felt he was triggered to do so as if like he was a mechanism of the surrounding people.

Sohn came back and tried again - on his second attempt, the photo was snapped of his dog's desperate attempt to follow the departing car.

Nobody is sure where the dog, named "Bronson," is today. Sohn claims that the dog later jumped out of his vehicle and disappeared.

According to ABC 5 News, the 31-year-old man is facing animal cruelty and neglect charges from the Denver Animal Control - he will have to appear in court on July 2 to face those charges.
