The dog can be seen struggling while being pulled by a leash in Pu’er city, Yunnan province.
A witness filmed the video who said the dog had been bleeding. The witness said: ‘The lower part of its body was bleeding. It is possible that the dog was dragged for a long time.’
The video has sparked outrage in China after it went viral online.
‘Such inhumane actions! Such a poor dog,’ one person wrote on Chinese microblogging site Weibo.
‘If you don’t want your pet anymore, just put it up for adoption. Don’t abuse it like this,’ another wrote.
The third one commented: ‘How can there be such a cruel person in the world?’
The man’s daughter apologized after the video went viral.
She said: ‘The dog was put under my family’s care as I had to work that day. Unfortunately, the elderly members of my family did not know how to take care of it properly.’
‘I am sorry. I didn’t take good care of my dog. I love it very much and I promise to take good care of it in the future.’
PETA Asia media officer Keith Guo told MailOnline: ‘If owners don’t have time for their pets, we’d rather they not bring them home.’
‘Even if you place the pet under the care of other people, tragedies like this may still occur. The poor dog was mistreated because its owner did not have time to take care of it,’
‘The dog’s paws and stomach were bleeding – there is no excuse to justify or defend such brutal actions. I hope the owner can spend more time with her pet and help her father realize it’s not right to treat animals in an abusive manner,’ he added.
