Humane society investigating video showing small dog thrown into door
Warning: This story contains details some may find disturbing
The Windsor-Essex County Humane Society is investigating after a video showing someone throwing a small dog into a door was shared on social media.
The short video shows a hand picking the animal up by the scruff of its neck before tossing it through the air. The dog twists as it slams into a red door, falls to the ground, gets up and takes a few shaky steps.
It began circulating on Facebook in Windsor-Essex Monday.
"We really encourage people if you recognize the location, if you recognize the dog or the individual involved that you contact us or Crime Stoppers," said the humane society's executive director Melanie Coulter. "We are looking for information and even if you aren't sure if it will be helpful just give us a call and let us know. Our officers will pursue everything we receive."
