In Dekalb County, Georgia, a man was seen on surveillance camera dragging and punching a puppy at a BP station. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that the man was identified as Kirby Crane, 26, from Ellenwood. Crane has since been charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty. The incident occurred, according to witnesses, after a couple gave Crane the puppy back after it had wandered off.
The witnesses were also the ones who called the police when they saw how Crane treated the puppy after getting it back. Crane did admit to being the man in the video when questioned by police – he also claimed that he didn’t remember hitting the puppy. Right, like we are supposed to believe that!
Watch the video to see how Crane mistreated the dog (it isn’t pretty or suitable for everyone)
The puppy is now safe and in the hand of Lifeline and Dekalb County Animal Services.
Share away, people.
