Two women have been videoed dragging a scared dog to his death behind a truck “in revenge” for allegedly biting a child. The defenseless dog was tied by a rope from its neck to the bumper of the 4×4 pickup truck in a small community of San Pedro, Paraguay. Authorities are now investigating the disturbing case of animal cruelty.
According to the Mirror, the dog named Tyson, was dragged to its death as the truck takes off and the dog desperately tries to escape and run to keep up. The video shows one of the women in the passenger seat of the truck holding a small child on her lap as the other woman drives away. Tragically, the poor dog couldn’t keep up, the women never stopped until the dog was mercilessly dragged to his death and then they left his body on the side of the road.
Officials report the women are the mother and grandmother of the child who had allegedly been bitten by the dog.
What a tragic statement as to how people in this community perceived this horrible act as reports surface that the villagers just watched as the dog was being tortured and dragged to his death in a most egregious and heartbreaking display of animal cruelty. Whoever filmed this video never put any efforts forward to rescue the dog. Fortunately the video was turned over to the police.
