Dog thrown off bridge survives in Lithuania

(WARNING: This video is graphic and disturbing)

A man in Lithuania who arranged to have himself filmed throwing a dog over the side of a bridge — and then posted the video online — was forced to turn himself in today after internet groups tracked him down and outed him.

The video, posted on Lithuanian websites, quickly spread across the Internet, prompting Facebook groups and others to call for him to be brought to justice.

The film, which appeared to have been taken from a mobile phone, showed the man carrying the dog to the side of the bridge. He speaks to the camera, making jokes about the videotaping, and how it will prove dogs can fly, while the dog rests calmly in his arms. Then he nonchalantly drops the dog over the side of the bridge.

The dog survived the fall and its whimpers can be heard on the video.

bridgeOutraged viewers on Lithuanian websites and international sites such as Reddit.com chased after the man’s identity, and police, with help from web users, determined the dog was dropped from a bridge in the Vilkija district in the city of Kaunas, the second largest city in Lithuania.

Police said a website they identified as www.15.min.lt was instrumental in identifying the man as Svajunas Beniuk.

The dog was rescued, received treatment for multiple fractures and internal injuries and was expected to survive. Beniuk was expected to be charged with animal cruelty, according to MailOnline.

(Note: The dog, named Pepper, later died. The updated story can be found here.)

V, If you go to the last paragraph of the story you will see in boldface type an update stating the dog died shortly afterwards, and a link directing you to the follow up story.

I couldnt even read the damn story for more then just “the dog survived” when i watched that video it made me sooo sick SOOO F***ING MAD!!! i cant and i wont even begin to describe what i felt after reading on and learning that poor Pepper eventually died!!!!!!!!! even after recieving care for the breaks and what could be done to help the damage to his organs, but you can multiply that by about a billion times when someone came to his rescue and loved him enough to try and make his final days free from that monster to live out his days away from sick f***s like that guy GOD DAMMIT I HAVE NEVER EVER EVER!!! BEEN SO DISGUSTED AND ANGRY BEFORE. I hope someone kills that guy before i find him one day. I f i have to tattoo his face to the palm of my hand and spend years wandering his streets holding that hand up to the faces that pass me by looking for him… I cant say that he would ever walk again but he might live and thats only cause i have a heart and i dont know that i could kill even him given the chance as much as i want to and feel like the universe is trying to tell me it put him in my path today so that i can right the wrongs and serve justice for Pepper or ANY living being he ever hurt, I just dont know if i can stay this mad till i find him but he would never be the same i guarantee that much.

Just recently came across this story while “surfing”….. GOD will be his final judge…and judge for all of us in the end.
Research agrees to the following regarding animal cruelty: It is the primary indicator of future violence against people. Soon, animals wont be enough. Perhaps one of his buddies might even be his first victim.
As for the vegetarians of the world, you have a good point. The human race began with hunting and gathering. Its going to be a rough road to illiminating such an engrained nature.

OHMYGOD. Poor dog. And it still wags its tail after it was thrown off. They should punish that man by throwing HIM off the bridge.

I Wish karmic law was legal, because then the police could throw him off a bridge and see how he likes it.

Notice how after the fall the dog still wagged it’s tail? Just proves that most dogs are better than most people.

I thought it was funny,but when I heard the dog scream I started to feel really bad.It’s so funny,because it’s the reaction that you think it’s fake.I guess I still can’t belive people are capable of such things.

The rage and pain this caused me is terrible. The dog’s cries of pain, confusion, and fear went to the depths of me. If given the chance i would beat this man to death and feel very good about it. A year in jail is a joke. He deserves to die badly.

I agree with Christopher LoGiudice. How does one beat the crap out of crap? The person taking the video is a heart donor, too — worthless SOS!

I agree with Christopher LoGiudice. Anyone who would do this deserves to die — should be thrown over the bridge to know how it must have felt! How does one ‘beat-the-crap’ out of ‘crap’? Worthless sac of shit!
