A Florida man allegedly left his two dogs to eat furniture as they starved to death, a report said.

Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey said that 33-year-old suspect David Fritsch Jr. had “literally starved them to death over a period of several weeks,” according to clickorlando.com.

“This is just the worst absolute case of animal cruelty I’ve ever seen in my 40 years as a cop,” Ivey said in a Facebook livestream about the case.

Fritsch, who was jailed Wednesday on two counts of animal cruelty, allegedly kept the dogs locked in a bedroom of his Canaveral Groves area home, the report said.

A necropsy performed on the dogs found pieces of wood from furniture, plastic bottles, band aids and a plastic bag in their stomachs, the sheriff said.

Fritsch allegedly admitted to police that he did not feed the animals, according to an arrest report obtained by the outlet.

Ivey said Fritsch “did nothing to give [the dogs] food, to give them water, to help them in any capacity.”

He is being held in jail on $8,000 bond.
