As the dog parent of a very hyper pup I can understand the frustration of having your dog misbehaves. That being said, I cannot understand this behavior toward a dog who is only asking for affection.
YouTube star Brooke Houts accidentally uploaded a video that has resulted in an LAPD investigation.
The video shows her hitting, apparently spitting on and yelling at her dog Sphinx as he tries to play with her. And a video you can see her slapping the dog on the head, yelling at him, shoving the dog into the ground and apparently even spitting on him.
Although she has removed the video already, clips of it have already made it rounds through the Internet and it been shared with the LAPD who says “We are aware of the incident. Our Animal Cruelty Task Force has received numerous complaints about the video and we are currently looking into the matter.”
You can see a clip of the video below and the apology she tweeted.
