Two despicable men were caught on video dragging a helpless dog behind a scooter for over a mile. The cruel incident happened in Tongren, China, and though the men were arrested, it is unlikely that they will face charges because of China’s lax animal cruelty laws, reports Newsweek.
A man named Wu witnessed the men dragging the dog while driving with his wife on Monday morning. Wu and his wife confronted the men and tried to get them to stop. Wu’s wife even yelled, “you’re killing it,” to no avail. Wu told Newsweek that the dog appeared to have an injured leg BEFORE the dragging started – for a short period of time the dog was able to run behind the scooter, but when he fell, the men kept going, dragging his body across the pavement for over a mile.
The men eventually stopped and video shows them carrying the grievously injured dog, who was observed with missing fur and a leg which was likely broken.
The dog was taken to an animal hospital with “severe” injuries – no word on whether or not those injuries were survivable.
The men claimed that the dog bit them without provocation, and they were angry. The case remains under investigation.
