Because a child was involved in the incident, the state Department of Children and Families should be brought into the investigation, Panhandle Animal Welfare Services Director Dee Thompson said.

"Disturbing as it was to see what she did, it was more disturbing to hear the child laughing in the background because that child has seen something that causes it to think that harming an animal is funny," Thompson said.
