A video that was put on social media Wednesday shows a man allegedly dumping a dog at Lake Ming.

The video, posted by Stephen Sage Silver, depicts a man walking toward his vehicle and forcefully shoving a dog away as the dog was attempting to follow him. The man then got into the vehicle and drove off, with the dog running alongside.

Silver reported the alleged dumping to Kern County Animal Services, providing the video he took as well as the license plate number and suspected make and model of the car. He said a KCAS officer found the dog, which appears to be a black pit bull mix, and brought him to the shelter.

According to KCAS, the dog — who has been named Anakin — will be up for adoption on Monday at 10 a.m. at the shelter, located at 3951 Fruitvale Ave.

“I’m glad the dog has a new chance at life, a new home,” Silver said. “I’m glad I was there when I was and that things turned out well."
