THE sickening moment an intruder tossed a family’s 14-week-old pet pup into a creek outside a home on the NSW Central Coast has been caught on security camera.
The confronting footage shows a young man snooping around Jayde Bennett’s property at Bensville on the morning of Friday 14 October 2016.
After stumbling across Jayde’s small dog, the unidentified man is seen to lure it over to him before picking it up and carelessly tossing it into a creek.

The man then callously stands by and watches the defenseless aminal struggling in the water before walking away.
The 14-week-old pup was washed up on the creek’s bank where it spent more than two hours lying soaked and distressed before it was found.

Fortunately, Jayde’s partner returned home from work for lunch and watched the CCTV footage just in time to find and save the couple’s aminal.
Jayde posted the disturbing footage to Facebook on Wednesday in the hope of identifying the “heartless grub” responsible.
“We’re trying to find out who this heartless grub is that was snooping around our property for something to steal on Friday just after I left for work,” Jayde wrote on Facebook.
“You will see what he does to our baby Prada and lucky enough for our cameras my partner goes back to find out where she is to save her this isn’t for another 2 & 1/2 hours later when he comes home for lunch though!”
The video has been viewed more than 1.1 million times since being posted online.
Anyone with any information is urged to contact police.
