Svajunas Beniuk is facing animal cruelty charges after throwing a neighbor's dog from a bridge. This man was accompanied by at least two other people who filmed the event. Svajunas holds the dog in his arms, walks to the center of the bridge, then waits for traffic to pass before tossing the dog over. The dog lands on the ground below, surviving the fall, whimpering, and unable to move.
This footage was posted on the Internet where it sparked an outrage among many Internet users (even 4chan jumped to the rescue). Kaunas police, PETA, and several other organizations were contacted in a mass effort to save the dog and track down the people in the video.
The dog is currently being treated for injuries (many broken bones and possible internal injuries). It is not clear yet whether the dog will need to be euthanized. However, he is making a recovery.
Svajunas had turned himself in and is currently released until charges are filed. He claims the dog kills his mother's hens and the dog's owner is a lazy drunk.
The owner says he gives what little he has to his dogs during a interview.
Internet users are still fighting to get maximum punishment for this blatant crime against such a calm, kind animal.
