McCampbell was arrested and charged with the ill-treatment of animals, WCNC reports.

The abuse happened Monday, though police didn’t learn about it until they saw the video posted to social media later in the week. An online post gave details about the locations where the alleged abuse occurred.

“It’s a good thing that they’re not alone because people are always watching, someone always has a camera. So, it keeps people to stay in check, at least we hope it would,” Mary Beth Knapp with the York County Humane Society told Fox 8.

She added that frustrated pet owners should seek help. “You have the responsibility of caring vet-wise for your pet, legally-wise for your pet, and then of course love, stability, and attention,” Knapp said.

McCampbell could spend 90 days in jail and be fined $1,000.

York County Animal Control said the dog is being held as evidence and is currently not up for adoption.
