BOISE, Idaho — The Boise Police Department is investigating social media videos reportedly showing some cases of animal abuse. There are unconfirmed reports from people who believe that the videos might have been recorded in Boise or the surrounding area.

BPD is asking if anyone recognizes the tattoos shown in the images above. The images are screenshots from one of the videos. Officers are hoping the tattoos identify the suspect if he's local.

Boise Police have not been able to link any reports of missing pets to the online videos, and there is no confirmation that the animal abuse happened in Boise. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information about the tattoos or the suspect is asked to call Ada County Dispatch at 208-377-6790, or you can make an anonymous report by contacting Crime Stoppers: 208-343-COPS (2677), or leave a tip using the “P3 Tips” app for your mobile device. Tips can also be submitted here.
