There is a loud splat sound that can be heard as the animal hits the cement ground below before the video ends.
The incident occurred in the city of Saenz Pena, which is located in the north-central Argentine province of Chaco.
The video prompted an fury of criticism from furious social media users.
Comments ranged everywhere from people asking her full name so they could find her and give them a piece of their minds to suggesting somebody should throw her off a building.
However, by then the teen, who is identified as Fiorela Alvarez, had already canceled her social media pages under the onslaught.
She did leave a public apology before parting.
She wrote online: ‘What I did was horrible and I am not justifying it. For everybody who is interested in the wellbeing of the animal, I can tell you that it didn’t die. It walked away.
‘I approached its owner to say sorry and I will take care of any veterinary costs.’
