First, let me start off with if you witness anyone abusing an animal please report them. You can call 585-223-6500 to report suspected animal cruelty.
So the man caught on video at a CountyMax store in Henrietta beating his dog was arrested. The man is 54-year-old Michael Meyer from Rochester. Because patrons and employees reported the incident and the video of Meyers punching the dog in the washroom they were able to make an arrest.
Meyers is charged with torturing and injuring of animals which is a misdemeanor offense. He faces 1 year and jail and a possible fine of $1000 if convicted.
Officials with the Lollypop Farm do not know the current condition of the dog because they cannot locate him. The dog is a German Sheppard mix.
If you do witness abuse of an animal or animal cruelty and it is an emergency situation you can also call 911.
I will say this. Some people should not ever be allowed to own an animal EVER.
