A Madison County family didn’t need to be home to know what happened to their little dog Scrappy. The incident was caught on their surveillance camera.
And now, according to a family member’s Facebook post, the man in the video has been identified.
In the surveillance video, part of which can be seen on abc6, a man the family did not know ran his car over their Jack Russell Terrier, Scrappy.
The video shows the man as he tried to walk to their door, but the family’s dogs held him back. According to the family, Scrappy nipped the man several times.
After he was bit, the man didn’t leave, but allegedly got into his car, drove to the back of the house, and turned his car around. The surveillance video shows the dogs run towards the car. Then it shows the car running over Scrappy.
Scrappy’s injuries were so severe, he had to be put down.
According to the Facebook post, although the man who ran over Scrappy has been identified, his name is not yet being released. He reportedly is a salesman who came to their home.
It is not known what charges will be filed against the man in the surveillance video.
