HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) — It’s a surveillance video that plays out like a scene from a Stephen King novel.
It shows two dogs tearing apart vehicles at G Motors, a northwest Harris County car dealership off Cypress Creek Parkway. Employees said the incidents resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage.
Video shows the dogs tearing off bumpers and fenders in three separate overnight incidents from Nov. 6 to Nov. 18. Sales manager Gaby Fakhoury said at least five cars were damaged. He estimates the incidents will cost $100,000 to $350,000.
Finance manager Imran Haq told ABC13 he thought “a wolf” was possibly responsible until reviewing the footage.
“You just never think a dog has the kind of power to tear up a car like that,” Fakhoury said.
Footage of the first incident shows a cat, which employees believe the dogs may have been after.
Still, Fakhoury said employees are terrified.
“Nobody wants to leave their cars anymore. They want to make sure they get straight into the office. They’re so scared,” he explained.
He worries customers will soon feel the same and that business will “drop.”
G Motors has filed reports with the Houston Police Department. Officers told employees and ABC13 it is a civil matter, meaning they cannot help.
