Dog abuse goes viral, 'Honor' saved

NEED TO KNOW
  • Kids posted disturbing video of abuse on Facebook
  • 'Honor' the dog is recovering, up for adoption

A disturbing video posted on Facebook shows a middle school boy throwing a 6-month old Pitbull named “Honor” over his head, slamming her to the ground then repeatedly punching her! It’s all caught on camera by another young boy laughing and cheering him on. It went viral after the teens posted the horrific video on Facebook.

St. Louis cops used social media to track down the teens and arrest them for animal abuse. “Honor” got a clean bill of health; she’s staying with a local Pitbull advocacy group, Even Chance, until she’s adopted.
