LEWISVILLE, TEXAS: The Lewisville police are currently searching for a teenage girl who decided to put her dog inside a clothes dryer and switch the appliance on.
The whole incident was captured on video and posted on Instagram by the girl.
Although the detectives have been able to identify the girl in the video, they have not yet released her name as she is a teenager. According to reports, the girl has not been charged yet.
On Monday afternoon, officials released a statement saying: "The Dallas Police Department, along with Dallas Animal Services, is aware of the video circulating on Social Media regarding a dog being placed in a clothes dryer. Detectives are working jointly with the Department’s Fusion Center to locate the female in the video."
According to the Dallas Police Department’s Animal Cruelty Detectives, the incident had taken place in Lewisville.
The Instagram post showed the girl first saying, "I’m gonna put his a** back in the dryer." She then picks up what appears to be a Shih Tzu dog and stuffs it inside the dryer.
The girl then proceeds to turn the machine on and clap her hands while shrieking with laughter.
The dryer runs for a couple of seconds before the girl opens door to let the poor pooch out.
The dog is seen in mid-rumble as the drum stops rolling. It then crawls out of the dryer and proceeds to scurry away.
The Lewisville Police revealed that a veterinarian evaluated the dog on Tuesday, CBSLocal reported.
"Upon completion of the exam, the vet released the dog to the rightful owner. Further investigation into the dog’s physical condition continues. We are awaiting the veterinarian’s report before releasing any information on the dog’s condition," the police shared.
