A disturbing video, shared on various social media outlets, shows a teen swinging a dog by his collar before stuffing him into a fridge. As reported by The Sun, the girl is from Sydney, Australia, and the horrifying incident has been reported to the RSPCA and local authorities.
The video shows the dog, a Pomeranian named Oscar, being lifted by the scruff of his neck, swung by his collar, and then shoved into a fridge, all while someone recording the abuse is laughing hysterically.
The girl reportedly attends a private school. The video made its way to the school principal, who stated:
“The College finds this footage most disturbing and does not condone this behaviour at all. Indeed we will be taking appropriate action and we will be informing the relevant authorities as you would expect.”
The principal has stated that “action will be taken” with the girls involved. No word on the condition of the dog following the recorded abuse.
