In Okeechobee, Florida, a heartless driver pushed a dog out of a moving car and never looked back. The loyal dog, having no idea what had happened, chased the owner of the blue car for at least a block, and then sadly realized he had been abandoned.
According to CbsNews12, area resident Ray Cashwell, witnessed the entire situation unfold on Highway 70 Tuesday morning.
“The door opened and I saw the dog getting thrown out… The car took off, I mean took off and the dog chased it,” Ray stated. “It’s like throwing your kid out the car to me.”
The small dog was frightened and Ray’s efforts to call him over failed, so he called The Trail of Hope Animal Rescue in Okeechobee for help. Volunteer Lisa Stark rushed to the scene and was able to capture the pooch she dubbed Bill.
Bill is being monitored at Okeechobee Animal Control and is expected to be turned over to Hope Animal Rescue for care and future adoption.
There are so many ethical routes to take to surrender an unwanted dog. Why take an innocent pet for a ride and throw him out into the street where he could get hit by a vehicle, starve to death or attacked by other animals? It is against the law to abandon a pet – how could anyone be so ignorant?
