Social media is is an uproar over surveillance images that seem to show a worker from a Houston energy company beating 2 family dogs with large pliers.
The two dogs were chilling by the family pool minding their own business when they noticed a stranger entering the pool area. Being friendly dogs, they ambled over to greet their new playmate when -- BAM! -- the guy knocked the dogs senseless with a pair of large pliers.
According to the NY Post, the homeowner offered to put the dogs inside the house when the man showed up on their property claiming to be from the power company.
But the man said he was fine with the dogs staying outside.
The dogs were treated for head wounds and the homeowner wants answers.
The Houston police and the energy company are looking into the incident which was captured by the homeowner's security cameras.
At least the guy didn't shoot the dogs like police officers do when they need target practice.
The man's only defense is he feared for his life when Snoopy came running over with his tail wagging wanting to play.
