The RSPCA is asking for the public’s help identifying the woman witnessed by an onlooker of throwing a German shepherd out of her car, kicking the dog three times and then trying to run the pup over with her vehicle in a Shropshire village. According to the RSPCA, the disturbing incident occurred in Eaton-on-Tern near Market Drayton.
Witnesses contacted the RSPCA and were able to capture the dog after he escaped and ran away. The dog is now in the care of the RSPCA who have named him Seth. Animal Cruelty Inspector Vicki Taylor recounted the story telling the public that the dog was not seriously injured and had indeed been very lucky.
“This is a shocking incident of animal cruelty. The dog is very lucky to not have been seriously injured. The female driver was seen clearly throwing the dog out of the car, kicking him three times in the stomach, before getting back in her car and trying to run the dog over – at which point the dog ran off.”
“This is no way to treat an animal. He was dirty and matted and a little scared following his ordeal but he is now getting a lot of love and affection from RSPCA staff,” Taylor continued.
The woman was seen driving a black Volvo car with a 60 number plate. The dog was not microchipped. Anyone with information is asked to contact the RSPCA at 0300 123 8018.
