Surveillance video shows the heartbreaking moment that a man picks up a dog and throws her over a cliff on the outskirts of Los Angeles, California. On Wednesday, Fox 11 Los Angeles News released the disturbing video, which captures the cruel scene.
The video was captured on a resident’s home surveillance camera – it shows the dog first leap through an open window of a sedan, and then, a man carrying the dog to the edge of a cliff before hurling her over the side.
Amazingly, the dog, now dubbed “Girl,” survived the harrowing throw. A resident in the area has stepped up to foster her. The man providing the dog with a temporary home has stated that she is “a very nice dog.”
The disturbing video footage has been turned over to the local authorities. Fox 11 reported that the Los Angeles County Animal Control has started to investigate the crime – the agency told Fox 11, “The Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control was shocked and horrified to see this video. Animal cruelty is a serious crime, and the Department is thoroughly investigating this case to identify the perpetrator and identify which criminal charges may be referred to the District Attorney’s office.”
