In Bridgeville, a 43-year-old dog groomer was arrested on Tuesday after a video posted on social media showed the abuse and mistreatment of a dog at a local pet grooming facility.
According to WgmdNews, the Delaware Division of Public Health’s Office of Animal Welfare arrested James Lee Campbell.
Brittany King, another groomer at the shop present when the disturbing incident occurred, posted the surveillance video on social media. She had been grooming another dog when the abuse started.
Campbell had been preparing the dog, named Austin, for a bath and became angry when the dog’s nail started to bleed. He aggressively threw the dog into the bathing tub and subsequently grabbed the dog and took him over to the drying table. The dog panicked and jumped on the floor; Campbell pulled the dog’s leash and choked him.
Campbell faces one count of animal cruelty for cruel mistreatment. He has been released on his own recognizance and has been ordered not to have any contacts with animals.
