The video appears to be a brown young female pit bull or pit bull mix and appears to be quite bewildered by the abuse she is sustaining. In the video, she makes no efforts to fight back, and shows no signs of discussion.

At least two voices that appear to be that of young males are heard in the video. They both laugh and appear to be enjoying the spectacle. The boy who is swinging and beating the dog can be hear claiming that the dog tried to run away. As he drags the video towards the garage door, he can be heard saying that the dog tried to bite him on the head.

According to the KDSK article, incident occurred in the St. Louis, MO area. The dog has been seized by animal control and is being treated for her injuries.
