A Maine woman says her puppy was kicked by a jogger and sent several feet in the air when she brought it for a walk along the Kennebec River Rail Trail, according to the Kennebec Journal.

The incident happened Monday afternoon. The jogger, described as a man about 40-years-old, 6" tall and with a fit build, told the woman to shorten the leash on the dog.

The woman thought it was a joke until the man kicked the puppy. She said her dog was limping after the incident.

Police have not commented on the incident.
