Sign: Distressing Video Shows Dog Nearly Unconscious After Being Choked By Trainer

Published: March 13, 2023 at 04:21 PM Author: PENNY EIMS

Rahway, NJ – Over the weekend, a distressing video went viral on social media. The footage shows a man violently shaking a leash attached to a dog who collapses from being nearly choked to unconsciousness; the man is allegedly Joshua Silverstein, a trainer with Bubba Luv Training.

On Facebook, the video posting states that this abusive behavior happens “often” but this is the first time that it was captured on video.  Watch Videos On the Right Of Petition.

 

And in short order, there were people calling the local authorities in Rahway, demanding an animal cruelty investigation.

Most of the sites affiliated with Bubba Luv Dog Training were immediately deleted from the internet, including the business’s own website and Facebook page. But some of their “about” information still existed after these events and you can read what the company says about itself in the screenshot below:

Watch the video footage and draw your own conclusion:

According to the Rahway Police Department, the local officials have been made aware of this situation and they have launched an animal cruelty investigation.

If you want to help ensure that this does NOT get swept under the rug and that officials follow through with their promises, please add your name to the petition today. 

This video footage is heartwrenching and there is no excuse for EVER treating a dog in such a manner, much less under the guise of “training.” If the authorities’ investigation confirms what the video footage appears to show, this business must be shut down and the person in charge held fully accountable.

Note: Though unconfirmed, the dog in this video is reported to be alive.

Individuals are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law. Animal Victory relies upon the authorities and the court system to determine guilt or innocence.

Update! The Mayor of Rahway issued a release about this abuse case. According to Mayor Raymond Giacobbe, the training facility has been closed down and vacated. A team of city officials, and the office of the Mayor, responded to the training facility after the disturbing video began circulating on social media. Mayor Giacobbe stated that he was “outraged” by the video and he thanked the public, stating, “We appreciate your concern and your support. The Police Department has received thousands of calls since the video was posted online, and I ask everyone to be patient and let law enforcement officials handle the investigation.”
