PET SHOP APOLOGISED, STAFF MEMBER VOLUNTARILY RESIGNED IN DOG ABUSE CASE AT NEX

Dear A.S.S. Editor

The pet shop in NEX shopping mall that is embroiled in an online shamming of its staff who was shown on video abusing a dog, has apologised. The staff has also left his job. However, AVA is still carrying out investigations over the allegations of pet abuse.

A 10 second video clip was circulated online on Sunday, by a customer named Jamie Thompson, that showed a dog being thrown into a cage by a person whose face cannot be seen in the video. The customer, who identified hersel as a 16 year old student, said the dog did not belong to her, but furnished details of the incident that took place last Thursday.

The shop in question, Pick-A-Pet, said that the staff member has been reprimanded, counselled and resigned voluntarily. The dog was also given a full medical check, and was confirmed to be healthy without any obvious behavioural signs of abuse.
