A video has been uploaded onto the internet by an animal protection group showing a man repeatedly punching a dog in the street.

The animal, which seems to be an American Bulldog, was attacked and then carried away down the street in Lancashire.

Public Response

The footage was put online so that the man could hopefully be identified by the public and arrested. Luckily after an amazing response from people who saw the video, the man in the video has been arrested and the dog has been taken away. The dog has been taken to a vet and is recovering very well with the RSPCA.

“The response we’ve had from the public has been absolutely huge over the last 48 hours and we’re very grateful for the scale and quality of this response,” said the RSPCA.

Attack On An Animal

Charlotte Booker, a RSPCA Inspector, has said that this was a continuous attack on the poor dog that was scared, and afterwards had to be picked up and carried down the street. Luckily someone had made a recording of the incident and the man could be reprimanded.

If you see or know of any animal abuse taking place, don’t hesitate to contact a nearby animal protection group or the police.
