Police are on the h*nt for a dog owner after d!sturbing footage emerged of them fo*cing their pet to run alongside their car.
In the heartbr*aking clip, the dog can be seen running by the side of the road in Lochgelly, Scotland, while someone in the car keeps hold of its lead.
Following the footage being shared online, it has ca*sed outrage among animal lovers. Reacting to the video, a local dog-walking company, GeoPaw Cowdenbeath, said it was unbelievably dan*erous and was the ‘height of stup!dity’.
A spokesperson for the company said: “I almost cannot believe what I’m seeing.”This may look funny to some folk but going by comments from those who have seen the video the dog was absolutely te*rified.
“It’s also extremely dan*erous and just the height of stup!dity. It’s unbelievable that any human can treat animals like this in this day and age. It’s just si*kening.”
According to reports, the Scottish SPCA said they had not received any reports relating to the incident, however, police confirmed that they were investigating the footage after it had been brought to their attention.
Authorities stated an officer was sent to the scene but that the driver and their vehicle were not able to be traced at the time. Other dog owners have since demanded police take the case seriously and follow it up, as the licence plate was clearly visible in the clip.
Speaking about the case, dog owner Jennifer Sterritt said police were letting animals down.She said: “I’ve seen time and time again people complaining about all types of animal ab*se, but they are letting the animals down big time.”
This upsetting story comes after a puppy had to bark and yelp for its life after it was left in a baking h-ot car by its owner. Boomer screeched as loudly as he could to get the attention of passers-by in San Jacinto, California, earlier this week, where temperatures reached almost 100°F (37°C).
After spotting the little guy ba*king from the parked motor, and fearing temperatures maybe even higher inside, a stranger managed to pu*l the dog to safety.In a post to Facebook, Riverside County Sheriff’s Office said the puppy had stopped moving but the person who pu*led the pet p*och out had managed to perform life-saving aid.
