Buffalo Police say they are looking into claims on social media that a man’s dog was poisoned.

In a disturbing video posted online, a man can be seen holding down a dog as it thrashes violently beneath him. This man claims that the dog, a 5-year-old pit bull mix named Kita, was poisoned by a woman who wanted to get back at him.

Buffalo Police say they have been contacted by several concerned citizens about the situation and have notified the appropriate authorities.

An investigation is said to be pending.
