According to Fox 30 News, a man in Jacksonville, Fla., was arrested this week after his mother called the police to report that he had set the family dog on fire.

The woman's son, 21-year-old Devron Quarterman, allegedly poured gasoline on the family's year-and-a-half old Jack Russell terrier, "Zero," who was chained to a tree. Quarterman's mother heard the dog's cries and then observed the dog rolling in the dirt.

According to First Coast News, when the mother touched the dog's fur, it came off in her hands - she has stated that the dog's fur smelled like gas and it appeared to have been burned. Responding officers found a lighter in Quarterman's pocket and located a container of gas in the yard.

Quarterman was booked into jail on a charge of animal cruelty. The dog who was burned is apparently still residing in the home with the man's family - there is no word on the extent of the injuries the dog sustained in the incident.
