In Wareham, Massachusetts, authorities are investigating a surveillance video showing a dog tossed off a 12-foot bridge over the weekend. The viral video was shared on Facebook by the Wareham Department of Natural Resources with the following description:
“People ….Please!!!!!! Dogs are not supposed to be tossed off of a bridge and no they don’t “like it.”
“We are aware of who the owner is and the dog is ok.”
The video shows the dog plummeting into the water. The incident occurred on Friday evening at the Onset Avenue bridge which runs over a body of saltwater. After the dog swam to shore, he ran to a nearby restaurant. The area is a popular spot for area residents jumping off the bridge.
Police have expressed their displeasure and are investigating. The owner of the dog has not been publicly identified.
