The Environmental Protection Ministry submitted an indictment to the Kfar Saba Magistrate’s Court charging an 18-year-old man with animal abuse, the ministry announced on Thursday.

The indictment occurred after the accused filmed a cellphone video of him throwing a dog named Lola 3 meters high and into the neighbor’s garden, and then distributed the video on social media, the ministry said. Lola, who belongs to the mother of a friend of the defendant, survived the fall after being projected over a fence, according to the ministry.

Following the requests of many Web surfers, police detained and arrested the man, who admitted he was drunk at the time the acts were committed. The ministry has filed the indictment under the Animal Welfare Law.
