Police Searching for Woman Seen Throwing Dog Into Street in Surveillance Footage

An investigation was underway after disturbing footage showing a woman tossing her dog outside a Northern California home went viral on Facebook.

The Fairfield Police Department and Humane Animal Services of Solano County were searching for the woman in the video, identified as Brandi Chin, and her dog, a pug named Ben, the station reported on Saturday.

“We are currently looking for her at this time. She is, from what I understand, hiding from us,” Sgt. Michael Ramirez with Animal Services told the Sacramento-area station.

Authorities believed the incident was not the first time she has abused the dog.

“She was recently seen walking down a business district in Fairfield, and she apparently had the dog by the tail and she was swinging it around,” Ramirez said.

A female resident at the home where the surveillance video was shot said her roommate is Chin’s boyfriend. She said the dog was hurt as the couple got into a heated argument.

“She got in a fight with her boyfriend, and she got upset and she … I don’t know took the dog,” Seward said.

She told the station she and others wanted to take the pug , but Chin stormed off with the dog before anyone could get him.

“I think that she should be punished,” Seward said.

Ramirez said authorities believed Chin was hiding in the Vallejo area, and were hoping the public could help them locate her.

“We are looking to file animal cruelty charges against her and have this dog removed from her, because the dog doesn’t deserve that,” he said.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts was encouraged to call the Fairfield Police Department at 707-428-7300.
