Friends, family, and strangers alike were horrified when a woman’s home security camera caught a stranger opening her gate to let the family dog out. The dog left the property and went missing.
Fortunately, the dog was found and returned to his owners.
In no way was what the stranger did okay, but a recently released video made the act of opening a gate seem minor compared to what a young man was caught doing to two dogs.
The owner of the two dogs let them outside in the East Baton Rouge Parish area.
There was something strange about their appearance when they came back.
A rope was used to tie the dogs together. The owner had no idea what happened to her dogs at the time.
Otherwise, she would have been horrified. Please be warned that the story and footage that follow may be disturbing to some.
Not only did alleged animal cruelty take place, but it was intentionally filmed. First, the two dogs were tied together with rope.
Then, the footage showed a young man as he held onto the rope and lifted the dogs in the air.
He gained momentum to swing the dogs in circles while they were tied together.
He released his grip, causing the dogs to be flung through the air in the parking lot. In a heartbreaking moment that is almost too painful to even watch, the dogs fell to the ground.
They cried out in pain and scurried away in total fear.
East Baton Rouge Sheriffs Office shared an update on their Facebook page after the tragic incident took place.
It read, “We are happy to say that deputies and animal control canvassed the area in which we believe the video was filmed and found the dogs. They are with their owners and happy and healthy!”
The young man who swung the dogs in the air across the parking lot has been identified and the local sheriff’s office is seeking justice for these pups.
I cannot believe anybody would do this to two innocent dogs, especially along with filming it in broad daylight, but at least justice can be served while the dogs amazingly did not sustain serious injury.
