Police investigate after video shows man hitting dog

Authorities investigate video showing man hitting dog at fireworks show

The authorities in San Angelo, Texas, are investigating a man who was caught on video hitting his frightened dog. On July 3, someone attending a fireworks show captured footage of a man who was yanking a frightened German shepherd through the crowd, and at one point, falling to the ground and repeatedly hitting the dog.

In a Facebook post, Naomi Carrasco shared two video clips and writes:

Received this video taken last night at the pops concert. This is a sorry excuse of a dog owner. Many of you may have seen him walking his dog downtown. I have. And as you can see, this dog has been treated with cruelty and needs to be taken away from him. I’m willing to take the dog in and give him a loving home. Calls and complaints have already been made to law enforcement. So if you happen to see him, call the non-emergency number.

    What would I do if I saw this behavior?! Certainly not offer this idiot mutant a hand up. I would have called 911 to report the incident and placed him under citizen’s arrest for animal abuse. Also would have given him a verbal lashing regarding what he did to his dog. At my age (almost 69), I don’t hold back like I used to when I was younger.

    Wow. I’m so very happy this man has been identified, this poor dog will be OUT of this abusive hell that it exists in. If I was witness to this, cops would be called as I confronted this man LOUDLY. Took his dog away from him. I’m sure he’s a drug addict. Or has mental issues. That is not with standing on this. People should have reacted IMMEDIATELY!
