Police are searching for a man who punched a dog and grabbed it by the throat in a pub garden in Dorset.
The cruel man was filmed punching a dog, grabbing it by the throat and then throwing it against a fence outside the Buffalo Bar in Bournemouth.
The man then dragged the dog away.
Police are now searching for the man and have released pictures of the man.
The pub’s manager, Simon Dawson contacted the police after he was informed by his staff about the incident.
The pub’s manager said: “I wasn’t really sure what to make of it really. I was upstairs at the time and it wasn’t until I saw the CCTV that I realised how bad it was.”
“Hopefully they find him because it was a horrible thing to do – I hate that kind of thing and hopefully he’s caught.”
Pc Emily Watkins, of Dorset Police, said:
“I am now issuing an image of the suspect in the hope that someone may recognise him.”
“I would ask anyone who knows who he is to please contact Dorset Police so we can investigate this incident with colleagues at the RSPCA.”
The shocking video was posted online and people slammed the cruel man for punching and grabbing the poor dog.
One user named Jane Littlejohn wrote: “When dogs are mistreated then they bite, it’s always the dogs’ fault not the idiots who do this to them. Hope the dog is back in the safe care of his loving family and this guy is prosecuted to the full force of the law.”
