The Houston Police Department served a felony animal cruelty warrant this morning after obtaining video surveillance of a suspect who is shown repeatedly kicking and hitting his 8-year-old black lab, Bear, on a rooftop in downtown Houston on Sunday, March 29. HPD handed Bear over to a Houston SPCA Cruelty Investigator at the scene. He was taken to the Houston SPCA’s Animal Medical Center on campus for a thorough veterinary exam. The Houston SPCA will continue caring for Bear. A virtual court hearing will be held later this month.
