No Charges for Viral Video Showing Kennel Employee Smacking Dog

Doggy Daycare Employee Fired

BRUNSWICK, MAINE (NEWS CENTER) - If you have Facebook, you've probably already seen the viral video. It appears to show a dog kennel employee roughing up a husky.

The video was taken at the Blue Dog Daycare in Brunswick - and has been seen on Facebook more than 10,000 times.

The employee in the video was fired - and on Monday, the Brunswick Animal Control Officer informed the daycare's owner that there would be no animal abuse charges.

Officer Heidi Nelson told NEWS CENTER, "As stupid as [the behavior in the video] was...it was not something that would require a summons." 

Nelson says someone alerted the Brunswick Police Department to the video.

She then showed it to the District Attorney, who said it was not worthy of a summons.
