Just not these guys:

A video which apparently shows US soldiers torturing a puppy has sparked outrage after it appeared on internet sites such as YouTube.

The footage, which is just 15 seconds long, shows a man dressed in military uniform holding the black and white puppy up to the camera by the scruff of its neck.

He then hurls it into the distance and the puppy can be heard yelping as the men laugh.

The video is no longer available on YouTube, although here’s a picture from that video.


ABC news has more:

The United States Marine Corps is investigating one of its own after a disturbing video appeared on YouTube showing a Marine apparently throwing a puppy off a cliff in Iraq.

The grainy images look as if they may have been shot by a cell phone camera. In the video, a uniformed Marine holds a small black-and-white puppy by the scruff of the neck and says, "Cute little puppy, huh?"

Then he launches the dog over the cliff. The puppy’s yelps can be heard until it hits the ground below. Then the Marine shrugs his shoulders while another Marine standing nearby laughs and says, "That was mean."

In a statement the Marine Corps, which declined to name the Marine, called the video is "shocking and deplorable."

Marine spokesman Maj. Chris Perrine said the soldier in the video was believed to be based in Hawaii.

"We do not tolerate this type of behavior and will take appropriate action," Perrine said.

It’s possible the video is a hoax….
