Michael Bennett, you Monster!

The Lucky Dog Daycare in Tampa sued the Seattle Seahawks defensive end for over $5,000 almost 10 months after the he and his wife left the little 4-month-old puppy, a boxer named Koa at the kennel before packing up and moving to Seattle.

After repeatedly evading calls and ignoring court orders, the Bennetts were ultimately compelled to pay a settlement of almost $15,000, reports SeattlePI.com.

“It wasn’t good,” the kennel’s attorney Mark Aubin told the newspaper. “That just isn’t how you conduct business and that’s not how you treat an animal.”

“It was foolish. It was ridiculous,” he added. “He abandoned the dog!”
