The BC SPCA is investigating after a video allegedly showing a dog being abused has been obtained by Global News.

The surveillance video shot in an elevator of the Private Residences at Hotel Georgia in downtown Vancouver shows an unidentified man kicking a dog several times.

He can then be seen hauling the dog by its leash as he exits from the elevator.

 

The video was emailed to SPCA in the last few days and is believed to have been taken in late July.

It is not clear if the man is the owner of the dog.

Marcie Moriarty with BC SPCA says they obtained a warrant as the result of their investigation and are now in possession of the dog.

“The dog was removed from the owner Wednesday evening,” she says.

Moriarty says the dog didn’t require immediate veterinary treatment and will receive a full examination.

She would not reveal where the dog is being held.

BC SPCA is investigating to see if animal cruelty charges may be warranted in relation to the case.

“Any time you see alleged evidence of an animal in pain, it is very upsetting and troubling,” says Moriarty.
