Everything was caught on video.
A police officer from Hammond, Illinois was caught on camera lifting his dog in the air with its leash, choking it, as well as whipping it, to get a ball out of its mouth.
"The video posted online shows the officer using a leash to lift the dog to its hind legs, then striking the dog's middle section with what appears to be another leash. He then lifts the dog into the air by the leash, and the dog is seen swinging around once.
"The technique isn't typical of the officer's normal routine, Doughty said, and Vohne Liche Kennels noted a handler should never slap his K-9 with his leash," reported NBC Chicago.
The officer, who was placed on administrative leave after the video went public, will receive additional training to make sure the incident isn't repeated," they added.
Is that good enough?
Don't you think this cruel officer should be fired for abusing his dog that way?
Then add your name to ask the Hammond, Illinois Police Department to take the correct action, NOW!
