The CEO of Centerplate has resigned after video surfaced of him abusing a dog inside an elevator, setting off a social media firestorm.

The incident happened at a Vancouver hotel in July and sparked a British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (BC SPCA) investigation after Desmond Hague was repeatedly seen kicking a Doberman Pinscher puppy and pulling it by its leash, according to Canada’s Global News.
