Twilight star Kellan Lutz is fuming after viewing footage of a teenage girl who abused six puppies by hurling them into a river in Bosnia.

"What is going on with the search for the girl throwing the puppies into the river?" Lutz, 25, tweeted Sunday. "I've never been so disgusted before. That video is so incredibly disturbing and plain out wrong."

The 43-second video -- which first appeared on YouTube before later being removed -- shows a giggling teenage girl (clad in a red hooded sweatshirt) pulling six small puppies out of a white bucket and throwing them into the raging waters.

Police in the the central Bosnian town of Bugojno told London's Telegraph they had identified the underage girl Friday, though they have yet to release her name; the girl's parents will soon be questioned.

"Heard Michael Bay put up a bounty for her or info leading to her arrest. Thank you for that, and everyone who is not standing for this," Lutz continued. "That cruelty and any cruelty to animals helpless or not is unacceptable. I can't get the crying puppies out of my head."

The Eclipse actor -- who appeared in a PETA campaign with his dog Kola earlier this year -- says he's grateful the teen will be held accountable for her actions. If convicted, she may be required to pay a $6,400 fine as a result of a new Bosnian animal cruelty law.

"I'm so grateful that she has been found and even more grateful for the new law!" he tweeted. "Thank you all for taking a stand and using your voices against such actions as this. You all are my heroes!"
