In Yadkin County, North Carolina, a disturbing video posted on social media showing a juvenile abusing a puppy, has resulted in a local student being charged with felony animal cruelty and abuse.

According to MsmNews, the Yadkin County Sheriff’s Office stated they received a copy of the video after a student reported the disturbing incident to a school resource officer at Forbush High School.  The video showed a person abusing a nine-month-old Australian cattle dog by picking it up by its hair, swinging it by its ears and slamming the defenseless animal to the ground.

The teen was identified and the dog was seized from the suspect’s home. The dog was examined by a veterinarian, and is reported to be doing fine. He will remain in his foster home until a judge decides what will happen.

Deputies continue their investigation and have not commented whether the video recently posted to social media was taken in the last few days or a month ago. Meanwhile investigators are examining if anyone else was involved in the cruelty towards the puppy.

Animal abuse is an early warning sign of serious problems. Anyone who could torture a small puppy would likely be inclined to hurt other animals and humans.
