In Montclair, New Jersey, a road rage issue was caught on video after the driver of one of the vehicles involved reached for a tiny dog and threw it nearly ten feet onto the sidewalk. At the time the video was released on social media, it could not be determined what happened to the dog, although a woman could be heard screaming:
“The dog is going to die! Oh my God. Oh my God. Why did he do that tho this dog?”
The disturbing video that had been posted online on Sunday evening showed a a red Honda and a white Toyota stopped on Bloomfield Avenue. The two drivers argued, and it appeared another person in one of the cars recorded the skirmish as it happened. The man driving the Toyota pushed the other driver who fell. That person then got up, reached into the Toyota and grabbed a small dog which he then threw out onto the sidewalk.
“What’s your f —ing problem?, the first man yelled and he got closer to the other man. He then shoved the other man who fell. “Record that,” could be heard.
The driver of the red Honda sped away as the little dog ran back to the Toyota.
According to TapIntoBloomfield, animal cruelty officials investigating the situation confirm the dog is still alive and suffered no serious injuries. Lt. David O’Dowd of the Montclair Police Department stated authorities have spoken to both drivers and added that neither driver will be charged or issued summonses in this matter. Possible animal cruelty charges still remain on the table.
“They were both given details about how they can file charges against the other, if they choose to do so,” stated Lt. O’Dowd.
It is likely the person who threw the dog may be brought up on charges. The New Jersey SPCA and Montclair Township Animal Shelters continue to investigate.
