To the Man I Saw Mistreating A Dog in Vancouver This Morning: NOPE

This morning I saw a heartbreaking sight: a man on Ontario Street in about his 30s yanked a dog's chain and pulled so hard the dog spun backwards. I saw you do this a few times, and you growled and screamed angrily NO. As you marched fast down the sidewalk like a big important man. You know what? You're not. Your poor dog - a beautiful brown fluffy border collie/lab cross with a red harness - just wanted to sniff the ground. And every time you yanked the chain your smart dog thought it was a game, and it smiled. :( Dude. I watched you go down the alley. If I see you again I'll film you and call the BCSPCA. You're hurting your dog and everyone can see you. Get help.

I seen a similar incident in burnaby. I was hard staring the guy down while he was reefing on the dogs neck while it was trying to enjoy its walk. He noticed I was staring at him watching him abuse this animal and he fixed his attitude pretty quickly.. for the moment anyways. Poor dogs.. we dont deserve them and their loyalty.

Thank you for writing this post.
Please contact the authorities immediately if you see this man again.
Should anyone else witness any form of animal abuse/neglect please take immediate action as well.
Doing nothing is not acceptable.

Good luck giving your dogs whatever they want. They don't train themselves.
