It's hard to believe two young teenagers would be so cruel to an animal. But that's exactly what happened.
Shocking video footage shows a teenager trying to set an innocent dog on fire, using an aerosol can and a lighter, the Metro reported. Another was filming the awful act.
The girls aged 13 and 14 from North Carolina have not yet been charged with any crime. Since the video hit social media, many have expressed concern an anger over the incident.
Police officers are investigating the incident. "At this point I have no idea what led up to the act. I just know what we saw with the video," Sgt. David Posten, with the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office is quoted as saying by the Metro.
However, it has been reported that the dog has been taken away and currently being cared for the Guilford County Animal shelter. Luckily, it escaped major injuries.
