The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of 60-years-old BROADUS LANE OXFORD (pictured).
On Wednesday, November 29, 2023, deputies responded to a disturbance call at a residence in the 5900 block of North Madison Avenue. While in the area, in the backyard of another home, deputies saw a female dog who was chained up.
The Voiceless Victim was so emaciated that as the pictures show, her rib cage was visible under her skin.
Deputies said the poor soul did not have access to food, water, or shelter.
When deputies questioned OXFORD about the dog’s condition, he claimed she was thin because she wouldn’t eat. Deputies also reported that the dog has never been seen by a veterinarian.
According to the arrest report obtained by Voice For Us, OXFORD “stated on body camera that he wished to relinquish the ownership of the dog to the state of Oklahoma and to The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office.” The sheriff’s office tells me the dog, a Pitbull/Boxer mix, is currently under veterinary care at Tulsa Animal Welfare and is expected to recover. Tulsa Animal Welfare will then handle her adoption.
When I inquired about the furbaby’s age and name, I was told: “Her age and name are unknown, as she’s never been seen by a vet.”
OXFORD was placed under arrest and booked into the Tulsa County Jail on one count of cruelty to animals. Online records show that bond was set at $2,000 and that OXFORD is still in custody. A court date was scheduled for November 30, 2023.
