In Eastpointe, Michigan the owners who are alleged to have abused a puppy in a social media video turned themselves into police on Wednesday according to the Eastpointe Police and Fire Department.
The disturbing video had been recorded by a neighbor at the end of August and showed a man appearing to pick a ten pound, eight-week-old puppy up by its ears. The puppy could be heard screaming in pain as the man repeatedly slapped it. The neighbor called the police and told authorities he had eight minutes of video showing the man torturing the puppy.
At the time, police turned the video over to the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office who did not take the dog into custody to have it examined by a veterinarian stating there was insufficient evidence.
The Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue posted the disturbing video on social media immediately launching a viral response of anger and outrage.
Isaac Brooks Sanders has been charged with Animal Cruelty and Failure to Care for a pet while Kershanna Seaborn was charged with Failure to Care for an Animal. The dog was surrendered to Animal Control and is being kept safe at Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue.
