A video that shows a woman threatening to hit someone’s pit bull with a log on Dallas Beach near Clover Point has gone viral on Facebook.
The video, posted by user Max Honeyman, shows a woman who is walking her own dog lift a log and swing it at Honeyman’s dog, Louie.
Honeyman and his friend Carly Gregory, who also posted video of the incident, are heard yelling at the woman to stop what she’s doing.
“What the f*ck are you doing?” Honeyman yells.
In response, the woman asks Honeyman to “keep that dog away from me.”
“It kills people, they kill dogs,” she says, referring to the pit bull.
Gregory told Victoria Buzz that Louie had no interaction with the woman prior to the shouting match in the video, and that he is always friendly.
She also said the woman continued to yell at them after video was filmed. The pair stood by until Victoria police arrived and they were able to file a report.
VicPD confirmed with Victoria Buzz that they attended the scene and will be following up with the parties involved, but no charges are being brought forth at this time.
As of Thursday afternoon, the altercation has been viewed almost 40,000 times. (WARNING: some strong language):
Unbelievable. This woman attacked my main man Louie at the beach tonight because she claimed Pitbull’s are child…
CAUTION DISTURBING VIDEO *********** Tonight while walking Hank with my other friend with a pit bull we encountered a woman who felt it was appropriate to call our beloved animals killers. Stating they kill hundreds of children a year. She began swinging a log at my friends dog, unprovoked. MY HEART IS BROKEN, THIS IS NOT OKAY. We will wait and see if we can press charges. Why do people like this exist? Hank is my world, my purpose and I am so saddened I have to fight for his breed. I hope I see the day bread discrimination doesn’t exist. Until then, share, use your voice and give this beautiful animal a voice.
