PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Oregon Humane Society is asking for the public’s help tracking down a man who was seen abusing his dog on a busy street in southeast Portland.

The incident occurred near a food cart on Southeast 27th Avenue and Belmont Street at 9 p.m. Saturday.

The man was caught on camera lifting a small dog high off the ground and choking it. Witnesses said the man yelled, “f****** liberals, this is how you’re supposed to treat your dog.”

Witnesses said the man was with a woman who also yanked the dog up by the leash. At one point, the dog was knocked off balance and fell into the street.

Photos of the pair and the dog were released Wednesday by the Humane Society.  

The man is described as 6 feet tall and he was wearing a gray conductor cap, black shirt, tan pants and black Vans shoes.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Oregon Humane Society investigations department at 503-285-7722
