JACKSONVILLE, NC (WNCT) – The Onslow County district attorney says his office will not bring charges against a dog breeding company charged with cruelty to animals.

Heather Smith is the owner of a German shepherd breed.

A video on social media shows her with a German Shepherd who has just given birth.

This video went viral and people criticized their methods, some called them disturbing.

The district attorney says the video is “intrusive,” but from what he saw, Smith’s actions in the video do not violate the state’s animal abuse laws.
