A shocking and heartbreaking video of a giggling teenage girl hurling six puppies into a raging river in Bosnia made its way onto YouTube (it has since, thankfully, been pulled!), and now Kellan Lutz is speaking out about his anger and disgust over the video that has attracted international attention for the viciousness of her act, taking to Twitter to express his views.
“What is going on with the search for the girl throwing the puppies into the river?” Lutz, 25, tweeted Sunday. “I’ve never been so disgusted before. That video is so incredibly disturbing and plain out wrong.”
Lutz also praised “Transformer’s” Michael Bay for offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the teenager throwing the puppies.
“Heard Michael Bay put up a bounty for her or info leading to her arrest. Thank you for that, and everyone who is not standing for this. That cruelty and any cruelty to animals helpless or not is unacceptable. I can’t get the crying puppies out of my head.”
The Bosnian girl has been identified by police and faces up to $6,4000 in fines, thanks to a new animal protection law. The name of the girl, who is a juvenile, has not been released. But she was found after tips were received from animal protection groups in the country. Lutz couldn’t be happier, responding to the incident.
“I’m so happy that she has been found and even more grateful for the new law! Thank you all for taking a stand and using your voices against such actions as this. You all are my heroes!”
Lutz has been very active in the animal community. He’s made no secret about his love for animals, especially dogs. He has been pictured with his rescued dog Kola in PETA advertisements encouraging people to adopt a dog from animal shelters. It’s great when celebrities take a personal interest in charities and causes that need a face. Lutz is doing that for animal rights.
