A woman in Nashville, Tennessee, is accused of using Facebook’s “Live” feature to showcase activity which the local authorities believe to be animal cruelty. According to Sunday’s WTHITV News, the video shows a woman, identified as Latorya Brooks, swinging a small puppy by its neck and then throwing the puppy to the ground.
The video was live on social media long enough for someone to save it and get it to Metro Animal Control – though the video is no longer active on Facebook, the saved copy proved sufficient for Brooks to be arrested and charged with animal cruelty.
According to the news source, Brooks has a criminal history – the puppy in the video was found and taken to an area veterinarian for treatment. The current condition of the abused puppy has not been released.
