A woman in Kentucky was shocked and dismayed when she saw an SUV pulling an open trailer with a dog tethered on top. On June 27, Facebook user Andi Isom posted a video that her nine-year-old child took of the concerning situation – she wrote:
I cannot believe what I’m seeing!!! This guy needs found! West Paducah by Hucks! Please share this!!!!
The post created an uproar – hundreds of comments were left and the video was shared over 1500 times. Comments ranged from “WTF!?” to “Well this is just stupid,” and “This is just plain wrong!”
But McCracken County Sheriff Jon Hayden reviewed the footage and though it is “alarming,” it is not illegal, reported ABC 7 News.
Obviously, the safest place for a dog is inside of a vehicle – not in the open bed of a truck, or on a trailer. The video which was posted to Facebook is below – what would you do if you saw this on the road?
