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.

    A Savannah woman is giving back to the homeless community and making them look good in the process. Besty Rothman hosted her third annual event helping at the old Savannah city mission on Bull Street today. She and a team of volunteers gave free haircuts, manicures, warm meals, and much more to people who stopped by.  Rothman, a licensed cosmetologist, said she organized the event to honor her late sister and to give back to the community.
