Actress Jenna Malone reportedly took action when she saw a dog being abused. On Wednesday, The Hunger Games actress, 37, shared on Twitter that during a drive through Hollywood, California, on Monday, she noticed a man repeatedly kicking a small white dog, yanking the animal in the air and choking it. “This was really scary,” she added in the Twitter thread explaining the event.
“I yelled at him to stop from my car but he wouldn’t. I got out of my car to try and get the dog but he started running,” Malone wrote in one tweet. The star added in another tweet that, after chasing the man and signaling others on the street to join, five men appeared behind her in pursuit. Having that support, Malone tweeted, “felt like a miracle.”
The actress claims that she then stayed back (because she has “no business trying to restrain a full grown man,” she wrote on Twitter), hopped back into her car, and drove to see if the alleged abuser had been caught.
“Six blocks down from where the chase began a big group had gathered and it look like the man no longer had the dog,” Malone wrote in another tweet. “So I pulled over to make sure that dog was going to be cared for.”
