On July 3, 2019, SAPD Officers who were working at the San Angelo Symphony July 3rd Pops Concert were informed about a cell phone video depicting a concertgoer striking a German Shepherd.    

The Department initiated an investigation and subsequently located the dog’s 71-year-old owner, who is a resident of San Angelo. 

As a result of the investigation, the dog’s owner surrendered his rights to the dog, Princess — who is now in the custody of a rescue facility. 

This case has been referred to the District Attorney’s Office and no further information is available at this time.
