(KADN) - A Scott man is jailed on a cruelty to animals charge after allegedly shooting a dog to death and posting video of the killing on Snapchat.

According to the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office, 23-year-old Isaac Gotreaux showed the video to others who became alarmed and alerted law enforcement.

In the video, Gotreaux allegedly stands over a dog that appears to be wounded and bleeding and shoots it three times in the head killing it.
A caption on the video allegedly described the dog using the n-word and accused it of chewing up Gotreaux's house.

Gotreaux is jailed on a 7,500 dollar bond.
