The video is said to have been taken at the TyCalK9 Dog Training Center in Arcola. ABC13’s repeated requests for comment went unanswered.
On its website, TyCalK9 boasts a celebrity clientele, including reality TV and NBA stars.
Video that has gone viral on social media shows the trainer lifting a dog on a leash and knocking it to the ground. The dog was then heard whimpering as it tried to get up.
The Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office released the following statement about the video:
“The District Attorney’s Office is actively investigating a report of animal abuse involving a social media video depicting the alleged abuse of a dog in Fort Bend County. We do not Details cannot be shared because of an ongoing investigation, but we take these matters very seriously and do not condone animal abuse in any way. Investigations and prosecutors with experience in cruelty to animals are underway.”
The Houston SPCA has also offered to assist with the investigation.
