If you're an animal-lover, this video will be hard to watch. If you're a dog owner, this video will be enraging.
A 46-year-old New York City man was caught on camera Sunday beating a pit bull puppy inside a local elevator. WCBS-TV explains the beating:
In the video, a man police say is [Irving] Sanchez is seen walking into the elevator with a small pit bull puppy named Max. Once inside the elevator, the man is seen dragging the dog from side to side of the elevator by its leash, hurling it into the elevator walls.
Then the man leans in and hits the dog repeatedly with the handle of the leash, wielding the strap like a club.
Finally the man starts stepping on the dog and appears to kick him.
The story does contain some justice. The man was arrested and the puppy was taken to a local shelter.
