LOUISIANA -- Two adorable dogs have been rescued from a vicious thug who was filmed swinging them around by a leash before sending them flying more than 20 feet on to concrete.
The video, filmed in East Baton Rouge, Louisiana, shows the young black male walking the two dogs down a street.
He then begins to swing them in circles using the leash attached to their necks. He lets them go, tossing tossing the poor creatures like rag dolls.
A second man, who appears to be filming the incident, can be heard saying: 'Oh yeah, b****h, oh yeah' as his friend brutally launches the dogs across the concrete surface.
Their howls of pain can be heard echoing into the distance as they hit the ground.
It remains unclear how the young man came to be in possession of the dogs but the dogs belonged to neither of the men.
After analyzing the video, investigators realized the incident happened in the Gardere area of East Baton Rouge, Liveleak reported.
In a Facebook post yesterday East Baton Rouge Sheriffs Office revealed they had found the animals after canvassing the area.
