A camera was rolling when a man was caught beating a dog in East Sussex. According to the Daily Mail, 63-year-old Laurence Skelson’s cruel treatment to his friend’s bulldog, Boston, has resulted in him being banned for life from owning dogs.
Skelson’s despicable behavior was captured by a horrified neighbor – video evidence showed the man intimidating the bulldog with a mop and a wooden board. The dog never retaliates against the man, and can be seen trying to get away, or rolling over in a submissive fashion in response to the abuse.
Thankfully, Boston did not suffer any long-term injury from the cruel incident.
