    Default Man Throws Dog Off Bridge - Read At Own Risk!

    Link to article:
    Svajuna Beniuk: The man who threw dog over bridge then posted video online is brought to justice by horrified Internet users | Mail Online

    A young man who threw a dog off a bridge has been hunted down by outraged animal lovers on the internet.

    He had posted mobile phone video footage on a website of himself dropping the dog on to a road below.
    The man, believed to be Svajunas Beniuk, stands on the bridge clutching the dog, apparently bragging about how he will prove that dogs can fly

    Then, horrifyingly, Beniuk raises the dog over the railing - and lets go.

    The man, believed to be Lithuanian Svajunas Beniukas, was filmed by friend.

    The footage starts with the 22-year-old carrying the dog - whose name is Pipiras, which means 'Pepper' - to the side of a bridge.

    He speaks to the camera and makes a joke about filming proof that 'dogs can fly'.

    Following the internet campaign, Beniukas is understood to have turned himself in

    While the trusting animal sits calmly in his arms, he scans the traffic to make sure no cars are coming.

    Then, when the coast is clear, the dog is calmly dropped over the side of the bridge.

    The footage also captures a second man who filmed the incident on his mobile phone.

    Miraculously, the animal survives and - to the viewers' horror - can be heard crying in distress over the roar of the traffic.

    The video is so shocking that most websites have barred its full content.

    The dog was rescued and is receiving treatment for multiple fractures and internal injuries. It is expected to survive.

    But the cruel clip quickly circulated in Lithuanian where the footage was shot causing mounting outrage.

    It was then passed on to other countries and began to gather pace as more and more users around the world expressed their fury.

    There then began an angry search among horrified animal lovers for the culprit.

    The Lithuanian man is expected to be charged with animal cruelty.

    Working with the authorities, they soon realised that the dog was dropped from a bridge in the Vilkija district in Kaunas, the second largest city in Lithuania.

    Local police then worked with users of a local website to identify the man as Beniukas, who - on learning of the hunt online - turned himself in to police.

    Baltic Times reporter Rokas Trecevsjis said Beniukas was already on police radar - he was a suspect in a robbery that had been committed earlier.

    The dog had allegedly killed some of his mother's chickens at her home in the village of Seredzius.

    It is believed Beniukas stole the dog and took it to the bridge to exact his revenge.

    Beniukas, who lives in Kaunas, has been charged with animal cruelty.

    If convicted, he faces up to a year in jail.

    Police later issued a statement thanking users of the website 15.min.it, in particular, for helping them to identify the culprit.
    Unfortunately the dog died on the 22nd November.
    There is a video of it, but due to the horrible animal cruelty in it, I wont post the link.
    How terrible can a person be to do this?

    I kinda wish the dog didnt survive the fall - can you imagine what pain he might've felt? Dying would surely be better than that.

    I almost vomited when I read that.

    Such a shame the people who saw it happen didn't pick him up and throw him off the bridge and into traffic.

    I think it was cause there was no traffic... it was a secluded bridge, in the video no traffic at all, except for one car. He was shielding the dog with his body so people in cars wouldnt see.... I know what I wouldve done if I saw this man carrying a dog on a bridge...
