A teenager in Central Queensland filmed herself kicking a defenseless, cowering puppy several times. It wasn’t long before the disturbing video went viral and garnered more than 70,000 views in less than 24 hours. In the last snippet of the video posted on Facebook, the woman hurting the puppy turned the camera around to show her own face.
Footage of the graphic attack shows the teen kicking the puppy as the pooch runs and tries to hides against a wall after having been kicked nine times. The puppy’s abuser, however still didn’t stop and chased the dog continuing to kick him. The video was shared on Facebook by the puppy’s owner, Rylee Phillips, who was not involved in the abuse of the puppy. The puppy could be heard whimpering during the 20 second video.
The woman torturing the dog can be heard in the video yelling,
“… your dog’s dead Rylee…how do you like that Rylee?”
According to the Morning Bulletin, Queensland police have charged a 17-year-old female from Koongal for allegedly “filming herself assaulting a dog” in Gracemere.
“It will be alleged around 7 pm the 17-year-old woman made a video where she kicked the animal numerous times and made threats before sharing the video on a social media app,” Queensland Police stated.
On Rylee Phillips’ Facebook page, an update on the puppy’s condition and accompanying photo was posted early Sunday morning:
“My boy is safe and sound thank you all for your help an support i am truly thankful idk what else to say but thank you everyone I’m truly grateful.”
