The homeowners claim the CenterPoint Energy employee went into their backyard to disconnect their service without giving warning and then proceeded to smack their dogs in the face with a wrench.

Mike Wilcox, one of the homeowners, posted surveillance footage of the horrific incident on his Facebook page.

The two 8-year-old dogs reportedly suffered eye and jaw damage, and one will undergo surgery, which will cost about $2,000.

The contractor has denied the customers' claims and reportedly said the Wilcox family purposely sent their dogs after him when they found out he was there to cut off their service.

CenterPoint Energy has opened an investigation and condemned the incident, according to FOX26.

"We are reviewing our processes to ensure that CenterPoint Energy employees are always respectful of property and pets. That is a priority to us, and the video was horrifying to see. It's disturbing to see and we are very sad that this happened," Leticia Lowe, a CenterPoint Energy spokesperson said in a statement.

However, the electric company said it will not take disciplinary action against the contractor or pay the Wilcox's veterinarian bills until its internal investigation is complete.
