A member of the Honduran Air Force was filmed while shooting a dog to death in a military base.
The soldier can be seen shooting the tied animal twice. Then, to make sure the dog was dead, the man proceeds to step on the dog’s neck and head.
A spokesman for the Armed Forces said the case is being investigated to identify the individual and that the necessary measures will be taken to ensure that this doesn’t happen again.
“The Air Force inspector is conducting an investigation and once we have the results, the Joint Chiefs of Staff will take the necessary actions so that these things do not happen again,” said Colonel José Antonio Sánchez.
“Once we have the complete information from the High Command of the Air Force, we will take the necessary actions to determine responsibility.”
