In Wichita, Kansas, a teen accused of beating and kicking a dog caught on a viral video will be volunteering with a local animal rescue group. The teen’s mother turned her son into authorities.
According to KsnNews, the witness who videoed the situation has agreed to help the teen after the dog, named Dragon, was surrendered to animal services on Monday. Randi Carter, who runs Beauties and Beasts Inc, and has been a dog trainer for 11 years, spotted the boy and his brother walking down the street and recorded the boy hitting and then kicking the dog. The video went viral after it was posted online. On the organization’s Facebook page, Randi posted:
“Offender is a minor and will be coming under my wing to volunteer and teach him about owning and training dogs. Thank you all for caring.”
Randi stated the teen will clean kennels and learn how to care for and treat dogs with kindness and respect. To help this organization save more dogs and be their voices, donations can be made by clicking here. Many thanks to Randi Carter for being the voice for those who cannot speak.
