Video of groomer abusing client’s dog goes viral

WILLIAMSBURG, Va.  - A video of a groomer roughly handling a client's dog has been viewed on social media tens of thousands of times in a matter of days.

According to Williamsburg Police, in May a former employee of "The Fuzzy Butt Stops Here" groomer recorded owner Mironda Henning roughly handling a dog while grooming it.

Court documents say Henning jerked and flipped around a white cockapoo named Gidget. Henning 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. Many who have viewed the video say they don't think the punishment is harsh enough, so they are taking matters into their own hands.

On Tuesday, a group of people say they will protest outside of the business on Strawberry Plains Road.

At the groomer on Monday, workers told News 3 Henning no longer works at the business, but would not say anything else about her. It is unclear if Henning is still an owner of  "The Fuzzy Butt Stops Here".
