man has ignited outrage online after being caught towing a husky on a road in Yunnan province while riding his motorcycle.
In footage shot by another motorist, the dog is seen skidding down the street on its belly while being pulled behind the motorbike as the driver appears to pay no attention.
After the video went viral on local social media channels, the man’s daughter stepped forward to apologize, writing that she had to work that day and so left her little dog in the care of the elderly members of her family. She explained that they didn’t know how to take care of a dog, resulting in it being dragged through the street.
When the woman came back home, she immediately took the animal to the vet. The woman has taken responsibility for the incident, asking netizens to cease attacking her dad who didn’t know any better.
Being ignorant of the harms of dragging a dog down the road behind a vehicle is certainly, at least, a new excuse. In previous instances, individuals have claimed that they didn’t know the dogs were there or that they were training the animals for a race.
Back in 2016, a driver in Shandong province was attacked by an angry mob after dragging a dog to its death behind his SUV.
