If you see an animal that could be in danger…

“Man shoved hose down dog’s throat” is a current story on 8News

Hayley Jacobsen, of Church Hill, said she was at the Chimborazo dog park Wednesday between 4:45 and 6 p.m. when she saw a man chase after his Doberman thinking it was eating something dangerous.

“He said I think she’s chewing on metal,” Jacobsen said. “He then grabs her by the neck and slams her down on the concrete and gets in her mouth and realizes it’s just old crusty grass.”

But instead of simply letting the dog go Jacobsen said what happened next left her stunned.

“He grabbed the hose, turned it on, and then proceeded to shove the turned-on hose down the dog’s throat saying, ‘this is what happens when you don’t ‘effing listen to me.’ He was basically waterboarding his dog.”
