Disturbing video catches man kicking dog to wall twice

In San Francisco, animal cruelty investigators are searching for the man caught in a surveillance video kicking a small dog so hard that the pooch suffered a fractured skull and later died. The disturbing incident occurred on Friday, and the public has been asked to help identify the man.

According to WtolNews, the San Francisco Department of Animal Care and Control reported the dog, a three-year-old Chihuahua and Jack Russell mix named Puppet, barked at the stranger passing by on the street. The dog’s owner, Lynda Coburn, stated that before the attack, the man threatened to kick the dog for barking at him. The video showed Puppet running up to the man before he kicked it. And when the dog ran back to the man a second time, the man kicked the dog harder causing the little pup to slam into the wall – resulting in his death Saturday morning at an emergency veterinarian hospital. Lynda could be seen in the video running to her dog and picking up the little pup’s nearly lifeless body.

Dog owners agree the action taken by the man was despicable, and there was no reason to kick a small dog that hard.

Warning: Video is disturbing and can be viewed at this link.

    What was the dog doing off the leash? Couldn’t the owner pull him away from the man? Sounds like the owner wasn’t very attentive to the dog. RIP Puppet, you didn’t deserve this.

      Agreed!!! One word to describe this situation: DISGUSTING…….

      Precious Puppet….. so sorry all the humans in this situation failed you so horribly…. all lives are treasures…. you did nothing wrong to deserve being murdered……

      RIP Puppet and look for MacKitty in Heaven….. you will be welcome to join his group of snuggle buddies……

      The POS who murdered this precious little treasure deserves to burn forever for in Hell for his cruelty, complete lack of compassion and respect for life…… Here is hoping that he gets there ASAP after dying alone, afraid, in pain and unloved…….

    What was this owner doing when that hunk of sewer sludge kick Puppet the first time? If that was my dog this maggot shit would be wearing a lead pipe around his head – this bastard needs to be caught and it is WAY past time for authorities to step up and change animal cruelty laws – the so called ‘humans’ who abuse, mistreat and neglect animals are no better than child abusers and should be treated the same. These are innocent beings who have no defense and no voice and prosecutors and judges treat these scum with kid gloves – the sentences imposed are so minute they are a joke. Where did humanity go? It seems to be disappeared from this country.

    Yes, dog, small or not, should have been leashed so she could have pulled the dog back. Having said that, what this scum of a sub human man did was cruel and abusive and due to his anger,caused the death of this poor innocent dog. I have a small dog and they tend to bark louder than a bigger dog, but this vile man was already angry from a previous argument, so he used his anger on this tiny animals. He should be caught and have to serve jail time for killing. Killing is killing, whether it be an animal or person. This homeless woman was known by the building owners and was helped by them at various times, so she was not a crazy woman, but a homeless person with a dog who she valued as her child. Whatever her responsibility in controlling her dog was, this scum of a so-called man, did something that he should be in jail for-killing.

      Angry at himself and his own failures in his life and takes it out on an innocent precious pet, low life is better off ten feet under. Society as a whole would be safer with low life’s like this dead. If a human being cannot and will not contribute anything good & positive into society than what is the purpose of living?

    Tough guy picking on a tiny dog. … FUCKING POS. The owner of the dog is homeless (certainly looks as much). She stated that prior to this FUCKER kicking the dog TWICE .. He was arguing with a woman (becoming violent). The dog was probably barking because it picked up this asshole’s mental problem regarding anger against some woman. Catch the SOB and blow his fucking head off..

    ROTTEN EVIL SOB NEEDS TO CONTROL HIS EVIL BARBARIC LOW LIFE TEMPER, FIND THE POS & LOCK HIS EVIL ASS UP AND LET SOMEONE BIGGER THAN HIM KICK HIM IN THE HEAD AND KILL HIM! Society as a whole will be a LOT SAFER with this EVIL BASTARD ten feet under!!! So if a child runs up to this POS and does something he doesn’t like who’s to blame the parent, the child or the BIG BARBARIC BASTARD???

      The woman (just guessing) he was arguing with .. maybe dumped his worthless ass. Perhaps he didn’t like rejection and took it out out some innocent dog. Not sure why anyone would want to blame the owner of the dog. I know she’s homeless. I’m pretty sure the dog picked up on the guy’s attitude/anger toward some gal he was arguing with. Animals are usually a good judge of character. Probably why it was barking at him. Who knows maybe it thought it was trying to protect that woman .. or maybe it was trying to protect it’s human. Who knows??? But the douche .. certainly didn’t need to kick it .. especially TWICE!!! And hard too.. Assholes like that piss me off
