“I was like, ‘This is going too far. This is not OK,’” Munday said. “I had to leave work to go pick her up because I couldn’t leave her there for the whole weekend to be treated like that.”
She decided to post the video on Facebook, which caught the eye of the employee’s bosses, according to WSB.
Stewart Wingate, co-owner of Bark and Board, told the news station the employee had never displayed aggression toward an animal before this incident, and he was immediately fired.
“No guest under our care is to receive any physical discipline,” Wingate said. “That is not appropriate — never had been and never will be at all.”
Wingate went a step further and said he is complying with a Brookhaven police investigation into the employee for possible animal abuse.
