NEW YORK -- Police say the man caught on camera tossing a dog into a dumpster is a kennel cleaner at the Islip Town Animal Shelter.

Investigators said a friend paid Michael Papini $500 to take her two dogs to the shelter because she could no longer care for them.

Officials said she never expected him to do this.

Papini was charged with felony animal cruelty and authorities were trying to find out what happened to the other dog.
