A Staffordshire terrier was the victim of disturbing cruelty after his heartless owner at an East Sussex pub dragged his dog to the corner of the outdoor garden area forcing the dog to sit under a bench and then punching his dog at least 40 times before pouring a pint of beer over the animal’s head. The disturbing act was caught on the establishment’s closed camera security system. According to Daily Mail, the defenseless dog had been sitting on a bench quietly next to another patron when the owner came out and apparently lost his temper.
The owner of the Royal Oak pub in Lewes told authorities she kicked the man out as soon as an employee came in to report the horrible incident:
“One of my staff came up to me and said there was an issue with a man and his dog in the garden. I watched him through the window and saw him hit the dog and I had to go over and ask him to leave. It was only afterwards, when I watched the whole incident on the CCTV, that I realized it went on for 15 minutes.”
The description of the disturbing situation continued:
“We saw him punch the dog 36 times, kick it four times, choke it twice with the lead and he poured a pint of beer over it. What you can’t really see in the video is that the dog is muzzled as well. So it can’t even defend itself against him,” the woman stated. ” I felt so guilty when I realized I let the poor dog leave with that man.”
When police arrived, they did take the video and are appealing to the public to help identify the man. The man has been described as in his 20s, 5’2″ with blonde or ginger colored hair, thin and wearing dark tracksuit pants.
Let’s hope the police can find this man and help this dog before it’s too late.
