Marine Throws Dog Off Cliff

13 06 2008

A U.S. Marine videotaped throwing a puppy over a cliff while on patrol in Iraq has been kicked out of the Corps, and a second Marine involved has been disciplined, according to a statement released by the Marines.

Lance Cpl. David Motari, based in Hawaii with the 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, is being “processed for separation” and received non-judicial punishment, officials said in the statement Wednesday night. The Marine Corps would not specify what that punishment was because of privacy regulations.

The statement said Motari received the punishment for his role in the episode that generated international attention.  The incident appeared on the Internet web site YouTube in March, sparking outrage from animal rights groups around the world.  In the video, Motari is seen throwing the dog off a cliff as it yelps.  I, as an American and supporter of our troops, am extraordinarily dissapointed with this behavior, and agree with the discipline dealt, however, i would like to know the other man’s role in the incident…
