Dog day care worker caught on viral animal abuse video fined $100, restitution costs

TALLMADGE, OH (WOIO) - The Tallmadge dog day care worker who was caught on camera dragging a dog through the facility faced a judge for sentencing Thursday morning.

Amy Beach was found guilty of  prohibitions concerning companion animals for the Dec. 2017 incident.

The Stow Municipal Court judge handed Beach a $1,000 fine, but only has to pay $100 given that she obeys all laws for a year. She must also pay $260 in restitution to the owner of the dog.

The video shows Beach pinning a dog's head to the floor at Tails R Waggin in Tallmadge.

The dog's owner was vacationing in Mexico and check the live video feed from the dog day care app, where he witnessed the abuse.

Beach offered comment in response to the incident through her attorney, Gerry Chattman:

The video clip now circulating on the internet of an incident that occurred in our Tallmadge location shows me handling a dog roughly.
