In the remote area of Atyrau, Kazakhstan, Asia, the owner of a dog was arrested after a video appeared on social media showing a dog tied to the back of an automobile being dragged down a road. The disturbing video was shot on January 7, 2021 by a motorist following the driver as he tried to get the culprit’s attention.
According to the Daily Star, the dog had been tethered by a rope attached to his collar and was being dragged behind a black car. When the dog was not able to keep up with the vehicle, he fell to the ground and was dragged leaving a trail of blood on the street.
Witnesses honked and yelled at the driver and were finally able to force him to stop at which point the man threw the injured dog into the trunk of his vehicle and drove away. The police were able to track the man through his license plate.
The driver claimed he had been moving the dog at the request of friends and that the dog had accidentally fallen out of the open trunk of his vehicle. The man has been detained and is under criminal investigation for violating animal cruelty laws.
Rescuers took the severely injured dog to an emergency veterinarian where he is currently being treated with pain medication. The dog suffered deep open wounds to his hip and severe road rash. His front leg was badly broken. The dog is currently under the care of Kind Hearts.
