ST PETERSBURG, FL (WFLA) -What does a puppy abuse story in Canada have to do with Tampa Bay? The CEO of a company that provides food and hospitality services to Tropicana Field and other venues in the Bay Area was caught on camera repeatedly kicking a puppy and yanking on its leash.
The incident was caught on a hotel elevator surveillance camera in Vancouver last month. Desmond Hague, of Stamford, Connecticut, is the CEO of Centerplate. The company services the Florida State Fair and several sports venues including Qualcomm stadium and the new Levi's stadium in Santa Clara, new home of the San Francisco 49ers.
The question is, will the video end up costing Hague and Centerplate business?
The video shows Hague abusing the Doberman puppy, according to Canada's Global News, kicking the dog and pulling the leash so hard the dog is lifted off all fours.
NBC Connecticut says the SPCA has the video and is actively investigating. The officers reportedly found the dog in a crate surrounded by its own urine and removed the dog.
While Hague is under investigation in Canada the question is, will it cost him business locally at the Trop and the Florida State Fair?
