A surveillance video capturing a man throwing a puppy over a fence has been shared on Facebook in hopes of identifying the suspect.
The video was posted by Karen Tavares, V.P. of Investigative Science & Engineering Inc. which is the site that the incident took place.
It shows a man walking the dog up to a high chain-linked fence, then roughly tosses the dog over it.
The man then proceeds to walk away, leaving the dog.
Tavares says the dog was found the next day. She turned the dog, along with the surveillance video, over to the San Diego County Department of Animal Services.
A veterinarian examined the dog and it did not appear to have any injuries.
Anyone with information about the suspect has been asked to contact their Carlsbad office at 760-966-3224 or CrimeStoppers.
