UPDATE: Man caught on camera kicking dog cited
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — After further investigation, the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office (LSO) has cited a man caught on camera kicking his dog, for animal cruelty.
This comes less than a week after LSO originally stated a citation would not be issued because his actions did not “meet the statutory requirements to be able to cite him.”
Now, after consulting with the Lancaster County Attorney’s Office during a follow-up investigation, an animal cruelty citation was served.
Cain, the dog in the video, was taken to a local veterinarian during the investigation. There he was determined to be in good health and had no injuries, according to LSO.
The incident occurred in the parking lot of DE Guns, 252 N 134th St. A staffer witnessed the man – who is not an employee of DE Guns- kick his dog over the security cameras.
Channel 8 spoke with Cain’s owner who admitted to kicking the dog because it “was acting like a total a-hole.”
The man reportedly told LSO that the dog is an 80 lbs. pit bull who “is an alpha male, and sometimes requires physical discipline.”
