SYOSSET -

The manager of Dog & Pooch day care in Syosset was fired after he was apparently caught on camera kicking and throwing a dog.

Dog & Pooch owner Gideon Hazan says he never had an issue with the employee. He says when he saw the video from Sunday, he immediately fired him.

“I was shocked that something like this could happen,” Hazan told News 12.

Owners say they have placed six cameras throughout the facility just in case something happens.

Hazan says he reached out to the owners of the dogs involved, to let them know what happened. He says he has not heard back from them.
