In the backyard of a home in Buckfastleigh in Devon, England, a disturbing video showing a woman beating dogs with a spade, sticks and broom sparked social media outrage and sent police and the RSPCA to the scene.
According to DevonLive, the incident occurred on Saturday. In the video, neighbors could be heard yelling at the woman and asking her why she was hitting the dogs with a spade? Six dogs can be seen and heard barking as the woman in a nightgown seems to be trying to separate the large dogs from a small terrier using a spade. Another person is then seen using sticks and brooms to help.
The RSPCA has been investigating; the neighbors however have been going one step further to make sure the dogs at the home are safe and have made repeated calls to their local representatives, the housing association and the police.
