Viral video of husky puppy abuse raises social media outrage

When a video quickly went viral on social media Friday evening, showing a woman from Leroy, Illinois tackling a Siberian husky to the floor and abusing him while the frightened puppy screamed and struggled, animal advocates became outraged. Southend Dog Training posted the horrific video on their Facebook page strongly condemning the woman’s actions:

THIS IS WRONG BEYOND WORDS SHARE, SHARE, SHARE.

Normally I would not share stuff like this as it’s difficult to watch but this lady appears to be trying a technique that is unnecessary in dog training and that’s Alpha Rolling dogs. Not only is it a violent behaviour, it’s dangerous for the handler, it’s scary for the dog and you simply do not need to do it.
This is not dog training, this is flat out abuse and the poor dog has no idea what’s going on, accept the human as lost the plot.
This women should not be anywhere near dogs, period !”

The calls and emails to authorities have been swift and effective thanks to concerned animal advocates. An Instagram screenshot from the puppy’s owner stated the husky had tried to attack her five-pound dog. The woman stated this had been an isolated incident and  admitted she had “pushed it too far by slamming it [the puppy] back down.”

The husky and another dog have been reportedly removed from the home. Updates will be provided as information is made available.

The video can be viewed on Southend Dog Training’s Facebook page. ( WARNING: The video is extremely graphic and very disturbing)

        I think the person above does not mean anything about her race that is inappropriate. It’s anger and just a descriptive adjective of how upsetting it is to watch….Just would like to see
        Fed Ex fire her for this tragic behavior. Then lock her up with a cell mate that loves dogs….Then the dog would be vindicated…so from my lips to God’s ear….I hope she gets hers.

      • Steve says:

        Jen, I did not take the comment you’re referring to as anything more than anger over the incident and was not a comment specifically about her race.

    • JEANNINE BISONETTE says:

      Contact Dick Durbin’s office 202-224-2152 US Senator from IL, and let’s get these two scumbags prosecuted!

        This cruel, hateful person will have her judgment day and will answer for this horrific behavior!

    “Alpha roll” is another military/paramilitary K9 ‘training technique,’ and I’m glad that there are people who find it repugnant. It is MILD, however, compared to many of their other ‘techniques,’ which include kicking, ‘helicoptering,’ followed by slamming to the ground – and the worst of all are the slow strangulations, usually by hanging. I remain aghast that so many people, in my department alone, have been able to witness this, and just let it pass. It’s a horrific spectacle of prolonged suffering, and yet it happens all the time under the guise of “training” (except some of our handlers have enjoyed it too much, for it to be simply described as “training”).

      Alpha role!!! Come on are you seriously compareing an out of control scum bag that’s beating a submissive dog a trainer? You are way off and who ever you or your k9 training knowledge, experience maybe even your ignorance comes from but where I’m from the shit your saying is not true. Yes k9 training is strenuous and a lot of work but never out of anger or loss of self control does this happen. This lady is a piece of shit and should never have kids or own any living thing. Her boyfriend who posted it is almost worse than her for not getting her or the dog out of this situation. ###skum bags

    Give me a few minutes with this low life bitch so she will never do it again to this poor dog. Scumbags like this deserve to have a terminal disease so they can slowly suffer in agony.

    I want to adopt this dog. Obviously she never fully read up on Siberian Huskies to know the breed isn’t the best to have in regards to smaller dogs or cats. My Siberians were raised around a multi-cat family. They are known for not caring too much about smaller breeds of dogs.

    I really would love and care for this dog and am interested in adopting him/her. I love Siberians and lost mine to cancer years ago. I miss her dearly.

    Seriously, it looked like she was almost breaking its neck. Scum of earth. Animal abuse is a felony.
    GET HER, lock her up, and register her and her boyfriend as an animal abuser! God only know what she would do to kids.

    I’m glad to see how many people saw this video, I had a huge part in leaking the video everywhere, from Facebook to twitter, even Instagram. I still haven’t heard anything about her being arrested and it’s been about a week.

      Thank you for your bravery! I emailed the mayor calling for her arrest and then I sent the video to the corporate office of Fed Ex calling for her job!

    I have emailed the mayor of this woman’s town with the video which I’m sure he’s seen asking for her arrest on animal abuse and I have also sent a copy to the corporate office of Fed Ex calling for her firing. I will send this to every news outlet I have contacts with and make them do something to this evil witch.

      Thanks for all that y’all are doing to bring awareness to this. Too many animal lovers in the world for any animal to go through this. That lady (if you can call her that) will run across the wrong person someday and they’ll remember her from this video. Hopefully justice will be served.

      Let somebody beat your ass and we’ll say it wasn’t that bad. You deserve an ass whipping for saying that you stupid ass. Abuse, is abuse, is abuse. It matters not to what degree, it is still abuse which is wrong, unacceptable, and should not be tolerated by anyone. Animals no matter what type do not deserve to be abused or neglected in any way whatsoever. If you feel like you need to abuse an animal then you don’t need or deserve to own one. You really should keep stupid comments like that to yourself because you’re just going to piss people off. It damn sure pissed me off.
