It takes a special kind of evil in a person to want to inflict harm upon a dog, let alone a puppy. When Tara Dycus of Houston, Texas was caught on video last week literally dragging and throwing her nine-week-old dog, Cookie, on a suburban sidewalk, authorities took swift action.

Cookie was ordered to be taken from Tara and placed at the Houston Humane Society before she could be transferred to a rescue home. Cookie did not sustain any lasting injuries from the abuse, and is expected to make a full physical and emotional recovery.

WARNING: This footage is graphic and could be upsetting to viewers:

Tara is now facing criminal charges, and though she expressed at her hearing that “losing a puppy is just like losing a child,” we can’t help but hope Tara never gets her hands on a puppy again. Stay tuned for more updates.
