A man was charged with tying a dead dog to the truck of a deaf co-worker as part of an April Fool's Day joke.



The co-worker left work Thursday unaware the Chihuahua was tied to his bumper, authorities said. Kevin Meloy dragged the dead animal 2 miles before a motorist caught his attention.



Several motorists had tried to alert Meloy, but he did not hear their warnings because he is deaf.



Paul Goobie, 47, was cited for unlawful disposal of a dead animal, a second-degree misdemeanor, sheriff's officials said Friday. He faces probation to two months in jail and up to a $500 fine if convicted.



Reached by telephone at home Friday, a man identifying himself as Goobie said, "I've got to go" and hung up.



Goobie allegedly told deputies he got the idea for the prank from the film "National Lampoon's Vacation." In the film, Chevy Chase's character ties a live dog to the bumper at a rest stop, forgets, and drives away.

That was not a joke or a prank it was a cruelty. Where are these people's minds?

It may not be cruelty, per se, to the dog (depending on how you feel about someone's body once they're gone), but it could be deemed cruelty to the dog's "owner." I don't care if my animal is dead and feeling no pain. You f%^* with them, dead or alive, and you'll likely get my foot broke off in your a**.

I think it's cruelty to the deaf dude. Not to mention all the people who witnessed such a horrible sight.

Extreme Cruelty

I hope when that guy dies someone ties him to a bumper of a car and drags him down the road.
