We sincerely hope you haven’t been unlucky enough to see the “Puppy-throwing Girl“ video that has been tearing across the internet. As the name implies, the video features a teen girl unabashedly and unhesitatingly throwing a number of puppies into a river.
The girl is believed to be a native of Bosnia, and Michael Bay has now joined forces in the YouTube-age witch hunt started by, perhaps surprisingly, 4chan. The Transformers directly was reportedly disgusted (as we are) with the video and issued the following message on his official website:
There is a disturbing video going around the news outlets. It’s a video of blonde young woman in a red sweatshirt casually tossing squealing puppies into the fast-moving river one by one.
Michael Bay has informed me that he is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and successful prosecution of the woman in the red sweatshirt and the person who shot this act of cruelty.
So while it’s not as extreme as the “throw her in the river” idea submitted by 4chan, it is a nice gesture. Frankly, we’re surprised that PETA hasn’t moved in the puppy-throwing girl yet.
