Authorities are appealing to the public for help identifying the nasty man caught on closed circuit video on Wednesday kicking an innocent pup in the head while the dog waited outside of a store for her owner. The dog’s owner, Danielle Duce had been paying for her groceries at the One Stop shop located in Bramhall Lane in Stockport, when she heard her dog Izzy cry out in pain.
According to the Mirror, people had been walking in and out of the store, paying no attention to the well-behaved pooch – that is until a nasty man made a beeline for the dog and intentionally kicked her in the head with his boot. The video clearly shows the man coming into view swinging his leg towards Izzy. He closes in on her and strikes her on the side of the head.
Danielle brings Izzy with her to the store everyday, and each time Izzy has waited outside of the store with no problems.
“When this happened I was inside paying when suddenly I heard Izzy yelp loudly. I went outside and a woman said, ‘A man has just kicked your dog.'” stated Izzy. “There were people who were confronting him, and a man in a van was shouting at him but he just walked away.”
The RSPCA is hoping witnesses will supply the information needed to identify the culprit. The man is described as wearing a distinctive blue coat, is his 30s to 40s and having blondish hair. Anyone who may have recognized him is asked to contact 0300 123 8018.
Although frightened, Izzy did not sustain any serious injuries. Still what will happen next time this animal abuser kicks someone’s dog for no reason? Help to bring justice to an innocent dog.
