A dog survived being impaled on a fence after falling from a third-story window in Flatbush on Thursday.
The 4-year-old dog, named Linda, plummeted from the window of a Linden Boulevard apartment building between Bedford and Flatbush avenues after biting a dog sitter at 8 p.m. on July 25, cops said.
The dog landed on the spiked crown of a fence below, which impaled the animal near the groin, according to extremely graphic footage posted to Facebook.
Detectives have not ruled whether the sitter flung the dog from the window, or if the animal jumped, according to a police spokeswoman, who noted that the incident remains under investigation.
The dog is currently receiving care from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, according to spokeswoman Savee Dalgo, who could not provide more specific information regarding the animal’s medical status.
