Authorities in East Ridge need your help identifying a van whose driver tossed a dog over the fence at the East Ridge Animal Services shelter last week.

The incident happened Thursday morning, when outside temperatures were at about 13 degrees.

East Ridge Animal Services (ERAS) says on Facebook says the dog was outside at the shelter for about two hours before she was found.

ERAS says a surveillance camera captured the incident, but says it's too graphic to share with the public.

ERAS says "due to the quality of video, we are unable to get the tag number. The pup is fine, but we would like to know who was driving this gold minivan. If you know who owned this dog or the female driver of the van shown, please contact the shelter at 423-664-0271. It is unlawful to leave an animal unattended and animal cruelty in the manner to which this dog was left at our shelter. She will be prosecuted when found."

Depend on us to keep you posted.
