Seeing any animal abused is disturbing. With the access to social media instantaneous, a video can go viral immediately.
Positive light can be shed on events like this. Those who are brazen enough to mistreat their animals are called to task for their actions and watched closely by the various authorities. You never know who may be watching or recording you with your pet.
Recently, a three-minute video was posted online of a woman biting and pulling the hair of her small dog. The dog’s carrier also yelled at the animal to “stop it.” Her actions were recorded by Roxy Huang, a passenger on Toronto’s TTC subway.
In the You tube video, the poor pooch is seen attempting to break away from the woman. A passenger does confront the dog’s abuser.
