Lancaster woman videos man dragging dogs alongside of car

A Lancaster, California woman was so worried about two dogs being dragged alongside of a car while a man drove, she rushed out to video the disturbing situation on Saturday. Desiree Durst saw a man holding the leash of one large dog outside the window of his vehicle and another dog running freely very close to the rear tires of the car.

According to KtlaNews, the incident occurred on a rural Palmdale road and Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies state they are investigating the incident. The video shows the man driving the car with what appears to be German shepherds. At one point, the man stops, puts the dogs inside the car and then lets them out again – this time leaving the dogs alone for an undetermined amount of time.

Durst was concerned the dogs were running very close to the tires of the vehicle, and it would have been very easy for one of the dogs to get hurt. She tried to get the driver’s attention, but stated he was annoyed with her and became very belligerent before driving away.

“I know what I’m doing; mind your own business,” the dog owner told the women.

The driver has not been publicly identified. More updates as they are made available.

    Another freaking idiot who has the brain power of a doorknob. Hopefully, this lady got his license number and reported it – NOW these investigators need to step up and find this guy before he kills both those dogs due to his negligence and stupidity. Some people should only be allowed to have pet rocks.

    This man publicly admitted intent so they should not have a problem with prosecuting him for felony animal cruelty and torture! these poor dogs need to be gotten to a no kill sanctuary immediately before he murders them and destroys the evidence! Thank God this heroic woman taped him and tried to stop him!

    I’m having problems with this story. The license plate number, make and color of the car is completely visible. The woman spoke to the man, as well, but didn’t take a picture of him? Why hasn’t there been an arrest? Something wrong here.

      He’s fat and lazy with no empathy for anyone but himself, obviously and he probably leaves the dogs outside 24/7 and feeds them whenever he feels like it, if at all. Hopefully, his dogs will be taken from him since this video has been on the news in Southern California since yesterday…

    A NO!! I would have flipped my wig. When did this country start allowing this? I have a Cardigan Corgi who has energy to burn and there is no way I would ever exercise him running behind or around a moving vehicle. This dope knows what he’s doing, mind your own business? Sounds like he needs someone to tell him that what he’s doing is dangerous and possibly abuse. I hope he is investigated and these dogs are dealt with appropriately!!

    I assume they have the guy’s plate number and will be citing him for this cruelty. Good work on the part of the woman filming the incident, at least she tried to make him stop. I hope the authorities get these dogs away from this moron, anyone that drags dogs alongside a car certainly does NOT know what he is doing and I’m glad this woman didn’t “mind her own business”!

    When people become belligerant it’s not in the best interest of the witness to take a picture of him, she could have been harmed by him. At least she did video it and talked to him but from there it’s up to the authorities to actually do something about it. Let’s hope they do!
