KANEOHE BAY (KHNL) -- PETA is calling for a thorough investigation into the incident regarding an online video depicting a soldier, possibly stationed at the Marine Corps Base, tossing what appears to be a puppy off a cliff in Iraq.
PETA contacted a commanding officer at MCBH Wednesday morning, asking for those responsible to be court-martialed.
"The men shown in this video are a disgrace to their unit and their country," says PETA Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch. "The suspects' deplorable action, regardless of whether the puppy was dead or alive, is conduct unbecoming of a Marine-or any decent human being, for that matter. The Marine Corps must take swift and vigorous action in response to this incident and establish a zero-tolerance policy for cruelty to animals by those serving our nation."
