A small dog in Springfield, Missouri, is dead after a man kicked him into oncoming traffic. The cruel incident happened last Friday just in front of 14-year-old Azealia Garrison’s house. Garrison tells KY3 News that her dog, Lightning, began barking at a man who walked out of the woods. Though Lightning was still on his own property, the man allegedly walked up and kicked him into traffic.
The driver who struck the little dog with a car stopped, and the man who kicked Lightning ran away.
A police report has been filed and though the family thinks that they have seen the man before, the police have not yet confirmed his identity.
Garrison tells the news agency, “I really just want to let people know that they really need to think about their actions before they do something because they don’t understand how many people they can hurt because they don’t know the back story to peoples lives.”
