On Tuesday, authorities charged David Pennell, 21, with felony animal torture.

Investigators said the Egelston Township man posted the video in May. It was still on his Facebook page on Thursday.

Police said the video shows Pennell knocking a raccoon from a tree, then encouraging a dog to attack the animal. When the dog started losing the fight, Pennell is accused of stomping on the raccoon's head.

The video was forwarded to a state conservation officer who turned the case over to prosecutors.
