Los Angeles Police’s animal cruelty division is reportedly investigating after a YouTuber accidentally uploaded a video showing her abusing her dog.
YouTuber Brooke Houts, in an accidentally uploaded video, appeared to hit her dog multiple times, as well as spitting on him and forcing him to the ground. All of this was done while filming a “dog prank” video for her channel.
Houts appears to have accidentally uploaded the video, as a different clip showing the “prank” was uploaded later. Houts has since apologized, saying, “I am NOT a dog abuser or animal abuser in any way, shape, or form. Anyone who has witnessed or heard true animal abuse will be able to clearly see that. My dog, in no way, shape, or form was hurt by any action that I displayed in this video.”
