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)
