We did some research and Texas animal cruelty laws are no joke. Should this teen (who we will not name) go to jail? Or be fined? See for yourself after watching the video.
In Texas, animal cruelty is a class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine.
What do we think? You can hear the dog being thrown around in the dryer. Clearly, this poor dog is terrified and this basically goes down as animal torture, right? The dryer runs for about six seconds.
No one forced her to put her dog "back in the dryer" and does this mean this isn't the first time? She laughs and claps. According to a post by the Dallas Police Department on Facebook, the offense took place in Lewisville, Texas. They are turning all the information gathered to the Lewisville Police Department. We really hope this department takes this crime very seriously and have no doubt they will.
We picked a video that also included a statement with the SPCA of Texas so you can see their comment.
The latest statement?
The latest Instagram Live Video was taken down according to the story in People.com.
Some comments asked the police to find her and others recommended she no longer own a dog. My question is, "where are her parents?" and do they care she's throwing their dog into the dryer? This Texas teen should know better, right? This small dog should be taken away and given to a loving family. The video is absolutely disturbing and this is yet another case of animal cruelty for the week. The teen's followers I hope no longer look up to her and question her behavior as well. Thanks to social media we're seeing the real behind the scenes of what teens think will get a good laugh.
Really? A clothes dryer? We'll report back with what the police does but in the meantime, we'll continue to report behavior and animal cruelty cases as these individuals shouldn't get away with these crimes, ever.
What do you think the punishment should be? Please leave a comment below.
