Cruelty towards animals have been on the rise recently or maybe thanks to social media nowadays culprits are spotted quickly. Seems humans no longer have the ability to understand or feel for a fellow living being. In such an unfortunate incident, a man was spotted throwing a dog repeatedly into the freezing sea. And now animal rights activists are in search of him. According to eyewitnesses, on November 2, a man was seen throwing a dog into the water in Hartlepool, County Durham. The man threw the dog into the cold water, dragged it out, only to push it into the sea again.
Animal rights group of the region, RSPCA, are in search of the man who committed the crime. A spokeswoman of the group was quoted as saying, “We are still making inquiries after we received a concerning report that a group of men with a number of dogs were seen in Hartlepool repeatedly throwing one of the dogs – a greyhound – into the water on Thursday, November 2.” An inspector launched an investigation and reached the scene, however, the group was no longer there. The RSPCA is now urging anyone with information to come forward. As per reports, there were 3 such men with at least 9 dogs who seemed prepared to throw all of them into the water.
An eye-witness who did not wish to be named told The Daily Mail, “They were being carried out to the end of the structure and unceremoniously flung in from a height of about 4ft and a distance, through the air, of 6ft. The waves were quite strong and my first thought was, once they had surfaced, what if they were propelled by the crashing waves into the rusting sides of the pier? There was a significant number of dogs in the group and it appeared that they were being taken out one by one.”
