A family in Kingwood, Texas, has demanded answers as to why a CenterPoint Energy contractor attacked their dogs with a wrench.

While we were home one morning a couple of weeks ago a Centerpoint worker comes into our backyard never knocking on our door and wakes up our dogs. Then proceeds to hit them with pipe wrench. My wife and kids watched all this from about 5 feet away. We filed a complaint with Centerpoint about this and have yet to hear back from them. Anyone who has ever met our pets can tell you how they are non aggressive and never bitten anyone! Hoping by post this video we can get them to change their policy on how they handle pets and save the lives of other pets. Please share and tag others to make them aware of how Centerpoint will deal with your pets if they come into your yard.

Homeowner Mike Willcox said the man entered their backyard unannounced. When his two Weimaraners, named Flash and Shutter, came to the man, he swung at them with a wrench.

“Honestly, I’m really upset [at] the fact he stepped into our backyard like that and he was swinging to kill my family pets,” he said. “It just made me wonder how many other times that guy’s done that.”

Flash received a concussion, and Shutter must have surgery for the injuries. The family insists neither dog has an aggressive nature.

The company “does not condone or tolerate abuse of animals by our employees or our contractors. We have notified the contract company and they have assured us that they will conduct a full investigation into the incident,” CenterPoint said in a statement.
