According to Williamsburg Police, in May, a former employee of “The Fuzzy Butt Stops Here” groomer recorded the business’s owner, Mironda Henning, roughly handling a dog while grooming it.
Local Wiliamsburg court documents state Henning “jerked and flipped” around a white cockapoo named Gidget. Video evidence above clearly shows Henning jerking and flipping the cockapoo in a very violent and abusive nature.
Giget’s dog owners reported the incident to Williamsburg police. After reviewing the tape, Henning was arrested in July and charged with animal cruelty. In August, she was found guilty and charged with a misdemeanor. Whining escaped jail time with a $1,000 fine.
Dog owners are taking the light sentencing to heart by making the abusive video go viral. According to WTKR News 3 Facebook page, the video link has been shared over 600+ times and has received 750,000k views since this morning. At the groomer on Monday, workers told local News 3 Henning no longer works at the business.
