Heartbreaking social media video shows authorities are investigating a dog training center for animal cruelty … and footage of the dog being brutally thrown to the ground is pretty damning evidence.
This happened at a place called TyCalK9 Dog Training Center in Arcola, TX… outside of Houston. The video, which we must warn is difficult to watch, shows the trainer barking an order at a German Shepherd.
Apparently, the dog did not listen to this command, as the trainer takes the animal by its leash, swings it over its shoulder and then throws it on a concrete floor. You can hear the dog moaning as he struggles to get back on his feet.
The gruesome video sent social media into a frenzy and also prompted the Fort Bend County District Attorney to launch an animal cruelty investigation.
The prosecutor said: “We cannot share the details as the investigation is ongoing, but we take these matters seriously and do not condone animal mistreatment in any way. Thorough investigation by investigators and prosecutors experienced in animal cruelty is ongoing. “
The coach’s face is not visible in the video, but the facility has reportedly trained dogs for local NBA superstars and reality TV personalities.
