Woman sparks fury after dragging dog along path on her mobility scooter

A horrifying video, which shows a dog being dragged along a road by a woman driving a mobility scooter, has sparked fury on Twitter.

The harrowing video shows the little pup being dragged on its side as the owner, who was sat on the mobility scooter, didn't seem to realise what is going on.

Onlookers noticed some tension between the dog and the long leash as the collar can be seen riding up the dog's neck.

The person taking the video from a nearby car shouts: "You are hurting your dog. The dog's going to die. You are hitting the kerb."

While it remains unclear what age the woman was, she can be seen looking directly at the camera, before seemingly turning away and muttering something inaudible.

The woman then carries up along up the road in the Erdington area of Birmingham as if nothing had happened.

After being shared by the Birmz Is Grime blog on Twitter, the clip has caused widespread fury and anger, with many calling for the woman to be found.
