Update: Woman May Face Charges After Viral Video Shows Animal Abuse

A Redding area animal cruelty case that was driven by a surveillance video that went viral on social media is being taken very seriously, according to the Shasta County District Attorney’s Office. Last Wednesday, a woman with a dog approached a local homeowner and was told to leave. The resident heard noises outside and then checked video footage, which showed the woman beating, biting and kicking the leashed dog. The video was widely distributed, leading to public outrage. On Friday the dog was rescued and Haven Humane Society is now taking care of the 8-month old Bull Mastiff. Haven CEO Mark Storrey says he’s in relatively good condition. The D.A.’s oOfice got the case Monday and they’re awaiting evidence from animal regulation officers so they can file charges against the woman.
