The abuser injured Teo, making him go unconscious. The video recording became the key evidence for firing the worker immediately.

What can you do if you discover a similar case?

To reduce this type of aggression, many countries have created animal protection laws that condemn such behavior. In Teo's case, the assaulter can spend up to three years in prison and pay a fine of up to $15,000.
