In Oldham, Manchester, a video was filmed showing a woman kicking and beating a cowering dog for not “sitting” when ordered. According to the Daily Mail, the four-year-old Rottweiler named Lennox was repeated kicked with a shoe and beaten on Thursday evening just as the former tenant, Carl Gough, arrived home and witnessed the horrific act.
Gough, 20, had only been living in the home for two weeks when he returned that evening and went into the kitchen. Shocked at the woman mercilessly beating the frightened dog, he said the woman told him she was punishing Lennox because he wouldn’t sit down.
“She then started kicking it in the hallway. Afterwards she kicked me out when I confronted her. She said there wasn’t a problem with it and that her partner also beats up the dog. I’m scared for its safety. It needs to be removed,” stated Gough.
According to the RSPCA (England and Wales) Facebook page, the organization has now taken custody of Lennox.
“…this dog is now in our care and we are investigating. A date has been set to interview the person in the video but, as our investigation is ongoing, I’m afraid we can’t give any more information at this time.”
