East Baton Rouge Sheriff's office investigating video of alleged animal cruelty

East Baton Rouge Sheriff's office investigating video of alleged animal cruelty”

Warning: some viewers may find this story and video disturbing.

The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office began investigating the incident after a video depicting alleged animal cruelty began circulating on social media over the weekend. As the young man approaches a street, he pulls on a rope, swinging the dogs around in the air several times before tossing them into the road.

Over the weekend, video was posted on Instagram of an individual swinging the two dogs around and hurling them into the street.

"The kid who did it is not from Iberville Parish and we don't think it was filmed over here", Stassi said.

"The young man from Plaquemine High School shared the video, he was not involved in the incident itself", the Plaquemine Police Department said Monday afternoon.

Deputies searched the area and found the dogs safe Monday.

Investigators said neither of the dogs received serious injuries. Deputies are still looking for the individual, who is believed to have recorded the video in East Baton Rouge Parish.

In the video, there appears to be a leash that connects the two dogs together.

Casey Rayborn Hicks, spokeswoman for the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office, confirmed they were contacted about the video Monday morning and believe the incident may have happened in the parish.

The dogs that were allegedly harmed in a video that circulated on social media have been found, the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office tells 9News.

"She was unaware of what had transpired on the video only that when the dogs returned home there was a rope tied to them", the department said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office at 225-389-5000.
