Horseman and Marlane Engles had previously decided to have the sick pet euthanized. They asked for him to be cremated at a nearby business, but instead Engles recorded a video of employees carrying the remains wrapped in a blanket.

In a statement, Rainbow Veterinary Hospital says there was a "delay" with Horseman's burial request, but it was ultimately fulfilled.
