Dorchester County, S.C. - The Dorchester Sheriff's Office announced on Monday that a juvenile has been charged in connection with an animal cruelty case in Ladson.
The incident came to light over the weekend when a Ring doorbell video, showing two juveniles abusing a cat, went viral on social media.
The video was recorded on a doorbell camera at a home in the Plantation Ridge neighborhood. Holden, 8, and his mother found the cat after the video was shared online.
The cat is currently being checked by a veterinarian and may be placed in a foster home as early as Monday night, according to Pet Helpers.
The agency received multiple tips about the incident and was able to identify the person in the video who threw the cat as a 13-year-old boy.
