Surveillance cameras caught a woman threw a puppy into a dumpster at an apartment complex in Oklahoma and walked away.
“I saw a female lady that had taken a dog by the neck and had walked it across the parking lot, carrying it, and chucked it into the dumpster,” C.R. Head, the property manager of Red Rose Apartments in northwest Oklahoma City, said.
He added that he went back to look at the surveillance video and cannot believe how someone could have done it for the poor pup.
“It’s very disturbing, you know. They left it there for approximately 10 to 15 minutes, crawled back in the dumpster, threw the dog back on the ground,” he said.
Head called the police, who arrived shortly. However, because they did not see the dog inside the dumpster, no official report has been made. Oklahoma Animal Welfare was also made aware of the video, and claimed it was a clear act of animal cruelty.
“This is something our officers will be investigating, and there is potential for even felony level cruelty,” said Animal Welfare Superintendent Ion Gary. “Obviously, that’s a very cruel act.”
