Police are searching for a dog owner who forced their pooch to run while someone in the vehicle keeps holding the lead.
The distressing video, which shows the dog running alongside the car in Lochgelly, Scotland, caused outrage among people from all over the world.
GeoPaw Cowdenbeath, a dog walking company, said the incident was the ‘height of stupidity’ and it was very dangerous.
“I almost cannot believe what I’m seeing,” a spokesperson for the company said. “This may look funny to some folk but going by comments from those who have seen the video the dog was absolutely terrified.
“It’s also extremely dangerous and just the height of stupidity. It’s unbelievable that any human can treat animals like this in this day and age. It’s just sickening.”
While the SPCA in Scotland said they hadn’t received reports about the incident, police confirmed that they are investigating the video.
An officer went to the scene but the car and the dog couldn’t be tracked.
Many animal owners asked the officers to take the case seriously as the car’s license plate was visible in the video.
One dog owner, Jennifer Sterritt, said: “I’ve seen time and time again people complaining about all types of animal abuse, but they are letting the animals down big time.”
This heartbreaking story comes after a dog had to bark at the top of its lungs after the owner left it inside a scorching hot car.
Boomer yelped for its life to get people’s attention in San Jacinto, California as temperature reached 37C (100F).
Fortunately, a stranger heard the pooch barking and pulled him out of the car.
