Recently, an infuriating video went viral in which a boy can be seen throwing a terrified pup over a cliff into the sea. The dog, probably a spaniel, was being helped by the boy while he was clearly trying to escape.
Then, something even more horrible happens—the boy is seen laughing hard as the helpless dog falls into the water.
Watch the video below:

According to the Police in Falmouth, Cornwall, they had been looking into the case after the video went viral.
A spokesperson of the police department said, “Police are investigating a report of concern for the welfare of an animal in Falmouth on the afternoon of Wednesday, May 1. This relates to a dog being thrown into the sea. The dog has been checked over and is uninjured. The investigation is ongoing and inquiries are continuing.”
The department even asked people to let them investigate without any “intrusion or inappropriate comments” on social media when people had started slamming the suspect.

The spokesperson added, “We ask that people, including users of social media, do not speculate around the circumstances of this incident, or the individual involved. We are aware of threats that have been made online would urge members of the public to leave this investigation with the police, and not to take the law into their own hands.”
In the video, we can clearly see the dog swimming to the shore desperately. The original video, after going viral, has been deleted.
It has been reported initially that the dog had to be euthanized due to having a broken back after the fall. However, the police announced again that the dog was checked over and was not injured.
A spokesperson from RSPCA also said that they had been made aware of the disturbing footage and confirmed that they were also digging deeper in the case.
The spokesperson said, “We have been made aware of some upsetting footage showing a dog being thrown off a cliff in Falmouth on May 1. We are very concerned about this incident and would like to reassure people we are looking into it.”
We hope the poor pooch gets justice soon!
