A heartbreaking video of a helpless puppy being thrown around and punched has led to the arrest of two teenagers. The Missouri teens, whose names were not revealed because they are minors, were arrested after stupidly posting the video to their Facebook page and having the dog abuse video go viral.
The video shows one of the teenagers flipping the puppy over his head and slamming the dog to the ground. After doing it a second time, he then holds the helpless pit bull down and starts punching him repeatedly. The second teenager is filming the attack on his cell phone and can be heard laughing. The video ends with the attacking teenager picking the puppy under his front paws and carrying him into the house.
Last month, a heartless Los Angeles man was sentenced to jail after a viral video showed him literally dragging a puppy across the street, resulting in severe injuries to the dog. Dossey James was convicted on two counts of animal cruelty and still has other animal cruelty charges from separate incidents pending against him.
In the heartbreaking video, the tiny puppy was being dragged on its stomach on a leash because “it refused to walk,” according to the police statement. Witnesses said the puppy was leaving a trial of blood behind it, but James continued to drag it along. The dog has since been handed over to the Animal Cruelty Task Force; he needed surgery because of the injuries suffered, but is expected to make a full recovery.
