70-Pound Lab Picked Up And Thrown Around By Large Gust Of Wind

A now-viral video shows a 70-pound lab being lifted in the air by a suspected dust devil and tossed around.

The footage was taken in Weyers Cave, Virginia, and shows a dog named Duke being briefly lifted into the air by what’s suspected to be a dust devil.

According to Duke’s owner, Brittany Wampler, the 70-pound lab is completely fine, thankfully.
