One of the dogs found at Corey Harrison’s old apartment.

Corey Marion Harrison
An arrest warrant has been issued for a Midwest City man after “one of the most egregious” animal cruelty cases the Midwest City police say they’ve ever seen.

Corey Marion Harrison, 26, moved from a Midwest City apartment, but left two pit bulls, one an adult, one six months old, behind in the old apartment with no access to food or water. A maintenance supervisor at the apartment complex found the dogs on July 11 in “severely emaciated” condition. Harrison had left the apartment June 19.

The dogs were left in a cage. Microchips showed the dogs belonged to Harrison, who told police he left the dogs because they needed to be bathed before he moved them to his new apartment.

A neighbor at the apartment said they hadn’t seen anyone leaving or entering the apartment since Harrison moved.

The older dog, taken to a animal rehab facility, was able to walk and stand and is now in a foster home, where it is thriving. The younger puppy died Monday after multiple medical complications and being unable to stand or take food or water. Veterinary technicians said the conditions of the dogs were believed to be the results of long-term neglect and abuse.

Harrison has family in the Muskogee area, and police believe he may be here.
