A graphic video posted on Instagram is creating a stir among animal lovers. The video shows two men and a dog – the dog is on the receiving end of a brutal beating. At one point, the dog is whipped with a belt…moments later she is  picked up by the neck and hurled to the ground. Almost instantaneously the dog begins to scream in pain, while one of the men laughs at her suffering and mentions that her leg is broken.

The video is reported to have been taken in Texarkana, Texas and supposedly the authorities have been notified, though their response was allegedly dismissive. The Instagram post reads:

I’ve sent the video to Texarkana Texas police Dept (903) 798-3116, a local shelter, and local news outlet in that area. The dispatcher at the police department was rude and her tone carried no urgency. I was told by the dispatcher, “There’s nothing we can do without a physical address. We don’t keep a rolodex of peoples address here at the station”

The fate of this dog is currently unknown – apparently the local authorities (at 903-798-3116) need some prodding to investigate further. Find the video on Instagram at this link.Warning – the dogs is clearly in pain and the video IS difficult to watch.

Multiple people have reported the brutal beating to the Texarkana Police Facebook page – click here to leave your own comments.

    I hope someone comes forward to identify these savage, rabid, maggot shit wads. Then stomp their jewels good so they can never breed more of the same ilk.

    Fire all the officers and officials for refusing to do their jobs and find this monster because they are abetting in this crime! Someone knows something and if they do not speak up then they need a good long prison term!

    We have gotten several messages and phone calls about the dog that was being abused in a video that was posted to social media. Like many of you, we were upset by what we saw and take this kind of thing very seriously.
    We have identified the man in the video and expect an arrest warrant to be issued very soon. Unfortunately, we have not yet been able to locate the dog, but Animal Control Officers are going to go back out in the morning to see if they can find it.
    Thank you to everyone who cared enough to bring it to our attention. However, we ask that you please not call to report this incident to us. We are well aware of it and are already working hard on it. After hour and weekend calls are automatically transferred into the Communications Center – which is also working to answer 9-1-1 calls for emergency assistance in the city.

      Thank God he’s been identified and hopefully by now he’s arrested and the dog has been found and treated. I watched the video (wish I hadn’t) and it made me sick. They need to arrest the POS who videotaped it and was heard laughing. He’s just as guilty.

    This coward piece of worthless low life ignorant scrum. Doesn’t deserve to breathe air. I would love to find these “men”. Make them cry likwcthe coward bitches they are. They beat on defenseless animals kids women their mothers. Because they care bullies. They would never pick on an equal opponent. Just low rent garbage trash. I would pay good money to see someone take these weak ass little bitches down!!!! Jail is too good. Give em Karma!

    Just watched this fine example of why some humans should never reproduce. This entire gene pool needs eradicated. I want to go track him down and start filling this ignorant low rent trash full of bullet holes starting at the ankles upward! Someone knows this scum bag, filth !!!. Who is this???? He deserves justice. Everything that dog suffered he should get it double!!!!

    As usual, this instance of horrific animal abuse is ignored – exactly what Texas is known for – this abuse was filmed and still Texarkana does NOTHING – there will be no investigation and this poor dog will continue to suffer at the hands of these pus filled maggots. The state of Texas keeps right on proving their consistency for condoning animal abuse. Someone KNOWS who these skanks are and needs to turn them in – not that Texarkana will do anything about it.

      I just tried the link and it worked for me – I am on a computer. Perhaps it is different on a phone (if that’s what you are trying to use?).

    Disgusting worthless human trash. Take a bat and break every bone in their POS bodies and then discard them in the garbage site with the rest of the trash. The Texarkana police is no better. You have light a fire up their ass to get them moving. I hope the dog is found soon. I pray the dog is not dead.

  9. Darla says:

    The POS who videotaped the cruelty and is heard laughing is just as guilty IMO. He needs to be arrested, too. I pray the dog is okay – my heart is breaking after watching the video and hearing the dog scream in pain.

    I just can’t believe this, someone has to know where this is….Both these bastards need to do time behind bars. The laughing antagonist should also be jailed. Sickening low life
