In Reading, Pennsylvania, it only took an eight second video for neighbors to suspect a man of animal cruelty shown beating a panicky, crying pooch on their surveillance video Monday.
According to Fox News, Mark Smith and Stephanie Bruner, with their surveillance camera mounted on their garage, showed a man carrying a dog by the scruff of his neck being smacked in the face. The dog whimpered loudly in fear and could be seen being carried into the back yard of the neighbor’s home. Very upset about they saw, the couple loaded the video onto their Facebook page. The couple and animal advocates viewing the hard to watch video, want the dog removed from its home and placed with a family who will treat him with love and respect.
Police have referred the video to the SPCA. There have been no charges filed against the dog’s owner and he has not been identified at this time.
