Police : College Students Forced Dog To Drink Beer

Posted: Updated:

BROCKPORT, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say two students at a New York state college were charged with animal abuse after a dog was held upside down over a keg and forced to drink beer.

Police say one of the College at Brockport students held the black Labrador retriever over a keg and apparently forced the animal to drink from the tap during an off-campus party Saturday at a house in the village, located 17 miles west of Rochester.

Another student took a photo and posted it on a Twitter account featuring stories and pictures from parties thrown by students enrolled at state colleges in New York.

The two men, both 20, were charged with torturing and injuring an animal. They were issued appearance tickets for town court.

The dog was taken by the local dog warden.
