A disturbing video, which shows a teenage girl swinging a small, white dog by the neck with a leash, was recently posted to Facebook. The shocking video, showing the helpless dog twirling from the end of its lead, quickly began circulating on social media, sparking outrage from disturbed viewers, reported Tuesday’s publication of The Sun.
The RSPCA has instigated an investigation into the situation and the video has since been removed by Facebook – it is believed that the girl in the video is a 14-year-old teenager from the Devon town of Bovey Tracey.
The dog in the video appears dazed at after landing back on his feet – no word on the dog’s current condition.
The RSPCA has asked that anyone with information about the situation reach out to them at 0300 123 4999.
