Heartbreaking social media video shows authorities investigating a dog training center for animal cruelty… and the footage of the dog being brutally tackled to the ground is pretty damning evidence.
It happened at a place called TyCalK9 Dog Training Center in Arcola, TX… outside of Houston. The video, which we must warn is hard to watch, shows the trainer barking a command at a German Shepherd.
Apparently, the dog did not heed this command, as the trainer grabbed the animal by its leash, swung it over his shoulder, then threw it onto a cement floor. You can hear the dog moan 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 prosecutor to launch an animal cruelty investigation.
The DA says: “We cannot share details as the investigation is ongoing, but we take these matters seriously and in no way condone animal abuse. A thorough investigation by experienced investigators and prosecutors on animal cruelty is ongoing.”
The trainer’s face is not visible in the video, but the facility is said to have trained dogs for local NBA superstars and reality TV personalities.
