Man Surrenders Dog to Rescue Organization after Viral Video Sparks SAPD Investigation
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.
