St. Louis, MO (KTRS) Two juveniles are facing animal abuse charges, after police say they beat a dog and posted a video of the attack to Facebook.
 
The video shows one boy slamming the dog into the ground two times. The boy then climbs on top of the pet and starts punching the animal repeatedly. The person filming the attack can be heard laughing off camera. (The video is posted below and is graphic. It also contains vulgar language)
 
St. Louis County Police were called by citizens who had seen the video on Facebook. At 3:15 PM, the video had been shared over 7,000 times. St. Louis County Police spokesman Brian Schellman says police cannot be in all places at all times, and they thank the public for bringing the video to their attention.
 
Animal Control seized the dog. They plan to examine the dog and treat it for any injuries. 
 
The juveniles are facing charges in Family Court.

A St. Louis woman has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor animal abuse charges for starving her two dogs to near death, then tossing one in a trash bin behind her home.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 22-year-old Cennitra Fowler pleaded guilty on Friday. As part of plea deal she was placed on probation for one year, ordered to perform 24 hours of community service, must take an animal care class, and must donate $75 to the Humane Society of Missouri. She is also prohibited from owning or caring for any pets during her probation.

 Fowler called the city about her dogs in October 2011, though it wasn't clear why. The dog thrown in the trash later died. The other dog ultimately recovered and was adopted.
