Last May, a former employee at “The Fuzzy Butt Stops Here” dog grooming salon in Williamsburg, Virginia secretly recorded video of her boss, Mironda Henning, an owner of the salon, abusing a client’s dog. That video eventually led to animal abuse charges against Henning.
Court documents confirm what can be seen in the video below. Henning jerked and flipped around a white cockapoo named Gidget. The shop owner was arrested in July and charged with animal cruelty. In August, she was found guilty and charged with a misdemeanor. She was forced to pay a $1,000 fine.
Now, months later, the video has been posted to social media and is quickly going viral.
Although Henning was arrested and charged, and current shop employees say she is no longer grooming dogs at the salon, she is still an owner.
A group of animal lovers who believe Henning’s punishment was not sufficient, and who believe she should no longer be allowed to own a business that works with animals, have planned a protest outside of the salon on Tuesday.
