Following a recent show in Scranton, PA, drummer Vinny Mauro, took to social media to express his concern after seeing a dog in the crowd. According to Mauro, the dog was being held “in the air for three hours,” something the 29-year-old said really got under his skin.

“Seeing the dog in the pit at our Scranton show really bummed me out,” the musician shared via X. “I wanna go on record to say unless your dog is literally deaf and blind and somehow also loves to be held in the air for 3 hours, do not bring them to a show, headphones or not.”

Mauro’s statement was posted in response to a fan video that showed the large dog on a fan’s shoulders in the middle of the crowd as the band rocked out on stage.

“Got a video because I couldn’t believe what was happening,” the caption reads.

Several fans took to the comments to back up Mauro’s concerns, many of which were at the show and felt the same discomfort seeing the dog. See some of their comments below.
