ORANGEBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WIS) – An Orangeburg man is the center of attention after videos showing him abusing his dog surfaces on Facebook.
The videos show Harry Leviner beating his dog with a board. You can hear the dog crying in pain as she is getting hit.
The videos were brought to Orangeburg Deputies attention in October.
Leviner was arrested on October 13th and charged with ill treatment of animals.
Orangeburg County Animal Control now has Leviner’s dogs, however, they were not given full custody. This means that the animals cannot be adopted right now, and Leviner will have a chance to get them back after his criminal proceedings.
Leviner’s trial date is still pending.
Animal Control says the dogs are doing well.
We will continue to update this story as details are released.
