One whistleblower witnessed a dog walker allegedly smack one of her leashed canines with brute force while at the corner of Forsyth and Delancey last week. The angry onlooker snapped a photo near Sara D. Roosevelt Park and passed along the info to Project Pet, Inc. in the hopes of ushering in some sort of street justice for the caretaker.

Today when I was walking my dog I saw this dogwalker in in the park by Forsyth and Delancey Street SMACK one of the dogs she was walking on the top of the nose and yell ‘BAD!’ and then smack the dog again. It was HARD, so much so that it made a noise that was audible from like 20 feet away, and the dog winced. This was upsetting and I can’t imagine the owners of the dogs she is walking would be ok with this. I took these pictures (unfortunately they are pretty terrible) in the hopes of maybe tracking them down. Does anyone recognize any of the dogs? Maybe if everyone forwards it to dog people they know in the neighborhood they can be found? I would guess they live south of Delancey as that’s the direction she was headed . . .

The dogs appear to be: 2 white small-medium poodle-type dogs, 1 small-medium apricot poodle type dog, 1 large black and white mix in orange coat, 1 medium-large floppy eared dog in blue coat with reflective stripe, 1 small floppy eared dog in black coat, 1 large black lab with grey muzzle.

Anybody recognize the dogs in the photo?
