Man slams dog on ground

Posted: Updated:
DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

Police in Decatur are looking for a man who slammed a small dog to the ground, killing it.    

Witnesses told police they saw it happen a little after 2 p.m. Monday at the corner of Sherman Street and 18th Avenue SW. They said a man slammed a small dog in a bag onto the concrete.

Police do not have any solid leads, just the color of the car the man was driving.  

After the man reportedly slammed the bag on the ground several times and drove away, some of the neighbors noticed the bag was moving. They looked inside and discovered a small Chihuahua. The city's animal control officer took the dog, which later died. Police are looking for any information that can help them find who did this, and they really want to know why. 

"It's just difficult to understand why anyone could possibly have any reason to do this. We're certainly looking at everything from the fact that the dog belonged to the individual to maybe belonged to someone the individual had a grudge against or, for some reason, would want to harm," said Lt. John Crouch.

Many people in the neighborhood are upset about the incident and want to see the offender punished.
