A video posted on Instagram is creating a stir among people. The video shows a dog being whipped with a belt…moments later she is picked up by the neck and hurled to the ground. Almost instantaneously the dog begins to scream in pain, while one of the men laughs at her suffering and mentions that her leg is broken.

This graphic video is reported to have been taken in Texarkana, Texas and supposedly the authorities have been notified, though their response was allegedly dismissive. The Instagram post reads:

I’ve sent the video to Texarkana Texas police Dept (903) 798-3116, a local shelter, and local news outlet in that area. The dispatcher at the police department was rude and her tone carried no urgency. I was told by the dispatcher, “There’s nothing we can do without a physical address. We don’t keep a rolodex of peoples address here at the station”

The fate of this dog is currently unknown – apparently the local authorities (at 903-798-3116) need some prodding to investigate further. Find the video on Instagram at this link.

Warning – the dogs is clearly in pain and the video IS difficult to watch.

GRAPHIC, BUT NEEDS TO GO VIRAL TO FIND THIS BASTARD!!! I hope this video goes viral because this man needs to be arrested. Hopefully someone recognizes who this man is. That poor dog!😢😢 Update: According to the guy that posted this, this occurred in #Texarkana, #Texas. I’ve sent the video to Texarkana Texas police Dept (903) 798-3166, a local shelter, and local news outlet in that area. The dispatcher at the police department was rude and her tone carried no urgency. I was told by the dispatcher, “There’s nothing we can do without a physical address. We don’t keep a rolodex of peoples address here at the station” Tag and share so it can be looked into.
