Woman Uses A Terrified And Helpless Puppy On A Leash To Beat Owner In Horrifying Video

The video showed the woman pulling the dog out of a car by its leash and using it as a prop to slam its owner

A mindless road rage incident took place in Canada where a woman was caught on camera as she violently swung a puppy on its leash. Cellphone footage from a nearby car showed two women fighting outside of their cars in Dartmouth, Halifax. At one point, one of them snatches the pet from another driver and begins hurling it around. The attack happened all too sudden and swift that there was nothing the woman could do to protect her dog. 

According to CBC, the footage captured showed the puppy being repeatedly slammed against the woman's head several times before she was finally able to wrestle her pet back. The incident has been reported and police are now investigating this horrific assault that took place on July 1.  "The altercation started after two females in one vehicle confronted two females in the second vehicle regarding being cut off in a drive-thru," Halifax police explained in a news release.



In the beginning, we see what appears to be a verbal argument breaking out with both the vehicles stopping to the side. The brutal attack on the defenseless pup was captured as one of the drivers just grabs the dog with its leash wrapped around its neck and forcefully tugs it away. The woman then goes on to smash the dog multiple times onto the other woman's head until the owner finally manages to grab the animal. The assaulter tries to whip her again with the other end of the leash as she was about to help the puppy. 





The outlet reported that the police eventually arrived on the scene but neither women wanted to press charges. Despite that, authorities still want to file charges and launch an investigation into the animal cruelty that took place after seeing the video. "There were initial reports of a dog being involved but the extent was not clear at the time. Officers checked on two dogs in one vehicle and they appeared to be in good health,' Halifax Police said in a statement according to Daily Mail. "The severity of actions against the dog was not known at the time."





Police say they are now continuing to investigate the mistreatment of the dog and anyone with information is asked to contact police at 902-490-5016 or submit an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers. The current federal legislation under sections 444 to 447 of the Criminal Code of Canada includes both indictable and summary charges for animal cruelty. Upon conviction of an indictable offense, individuals are liable to imprisonment for a term of not more than two years. American and Canadian anti-cruelty laws are inherently different due to the nature of their respective constitutions. In the United States, individual states legislate their own criminal laws, which amounts to 50 separate criminal code systems.





In related news, three dead dogs were allegedly found in a Kane County home despite the neighbors making animal abuse reports on the house for years. According to investigating authorities, the house which is located on West Drive in South Elgin has been probed more than 20 times in 5 years. Kane County Sherrif Ron Hain said, most recently, a deputy "noticed an animal carcass inside of a trash bag on the front porch." "There were areas of dog waste in the house where you would need a shovel to clear the path," Hain said. "We can’t just walk into people’s home if we can’t make observations from the outside, Animal Control officers have no “policing powers," he added. The owner of the house has been charged with animal cruelty following the investigation.
