SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Chatham County Animal Services is investigating a viral video of a puppy with its head stuck in a food container. 

WARNING: Some users may find the Facebook post and video graphic or unsuitable for children. 

Watson Wayne posted a photo and video to Facebook on Sept. 28 of a dog with its head trapped inside a plastic food container. His post was shared more than 3,000 times and received more than 600 comments, many of which were threatening. 

Animal control called the case a "priority investigation," but a spokesperson had no further details. 

Several other dogs are in the video. Some appear to be malnourished; however, it is unclear whether the owner has been contacted by any city or county officials or whether the dogs in the video are healthy.
