Thankfully, one of the witnesses shared photos and a video of the incident on Facebook. This video, however horrific, should be shared to reiterate that animal abuse is not okay!
”Anyone know who this scumbag is, volleying his dog up and down Park Road, leaving blood all over the dog and all up the road. He’s roughly around 50-60 years old,” he captioned.
Thanks to the uploads on social media, the police commenced hunt for the man who caused the outrage.
”We are aware of a video circulating on Facebook of a male attacking a small Jack Russell dog in the street leaving blood along the floor,” said Anthony Joynes, an RSPCA Inspector.
”This cowardly & violent behaviour is appalling and a completely unacceptable way to treat a dog. We urgently want to check on the welfare of this dog,” he added.
