This terrible incident allegedly took place in Shreveport, Louisiana. The vile footage was uploaded to Instagram on an account belonging to @blkbbydbo.
The footage is difficult to watch...the whimpering dog is callously carried to a watery drainage ditch and her head was plunged beneath the water while another laughing youth not only recorded the incident but cruelly told the person grasping the dog's head to "hold it." The footage continues after the dog is pulled from the water and runs away.
Once again, the dog is terrorized when two of the youths pick her up and hurl her into a muddy puddle.
This behavior is absolutely sickening and these people must be found and punished! The Shreveport Police have been notified, and the Caddo Parish Animal Control Agency is investigating. Please add your name to this petition and share it widely. These miscreants must be found and held accountable for their abhorrent behavior.
Video (warning, it is highly disturbing!) can be found on Facebook (Animal Hope and Wellness page) here.
Note: We are unaware of the dog's current whereabouts. From the video it appears that she ran away, but this cannot be confirmed.
Update 9/21/2020: Animal Victory has spoken with the Shreveport Animal Control, as well as with the local sheriff's office - both report receiving an "outpouring of calls" regarding this cruel situation. The authorities are unable to release any information about their investigation at this time. We have been assured that all of the evidence collected during this investigation will be turned over to the district attorney's office.
