Just witnessed one of the most cruel things I have ever seen.

Walking home from work down the canal and seeing a man walking with two small dogs one a puppy. I then saw him throwing one of HIS OWN jack russel dog INTO THE CANAL!!!!!!

I immediately fished the poor dog out, grabbed the bloke and called the cops. I held the guy until police arrived.

Man was arrested on the spot for animal cruelty. Dogs now in a safe place.

****ing shaking with complete anger!!!!

Lol. The randomness is pretty amusing. "Welp, I don't want this dog anymore. /toss"

Relax a bit. You got the dog out, and the guy got arrested. If something like this makes you shake with anger, consider yourself lucky that you're that sheltered.

He lives two minutes from where it happened on a barge (boat) on the canal. The police said that he probably doesn't have a permit for the boat to be there, and he may have more puppies on the boat as well as the one he threw in was an adult girl jack russell and the other dog was a puppy jack russell.

They are going to search his boat, and hopefully take it and the dogs off him completely.

The dogs went to the local police station and are going to the RSPCA now.

Not sheltered mate, I have seen things in my life that other dare dream about.

But seeing something so random and out of the blue on my walk home from a 9 hour shift at work this was the last thing I expected to see.

I was shaking with anger because I wanted to rip the guy in half!!

Can't stand people like that, I love animals, dogs especially, seeing people taking advantage / being cruel to them turns me into a loony, Id have been arrested too more than likely, hope he gets maximum sh1t for doing that

Good job you were where you were at that time or who knows what would have happened to that dog and quite possibly loads of others

Maybe that dog was past its best for making puppies to sell

Are they gonna let you know the outcome ?

Man I can totally understand your anger, animal cruelty tips me off more than anything. However you acted as exemplar as one could have in this situation, so hats down to you. Very few can be bothered to go all the way and many would just ignore something like this entirely.

I would be very angry too..... I'd also like to keep the dog if it was gentle, small, housebroke dog that's good with kids. The poor thing probably couldn't have any more puppies for him to sell at $600 a piece.

Why it's NOT OK to do that to dogs or cats, while we butcher thousands of cows, chickens, pigs, goat, ducks, etc everyday?

I don't understand why many people (maybe including myself) value animals more than humans?

For many of us it's normal to see animals as innocent things that need our help, while seeing another human being (who have their own difficulties and troubles in life) as a disgusting creature that need to be put away in a cage.

I don't like what the man did to his dog. I like animals and had many kinds of pets before. I'm just confuse how to address this matter. It's a morale battle in my mind

I had dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, swans, turtles, and chickens (yes, pet chickens, not to-be-eaten chickens), so I can say I'm quite an animal lover.

I value an animals life over certin humans lives yes, some people just arent fit to live in socity example......Child molesters what role can these people play in our community? They can and will if they have a chance rape your kids and iam supposed to value there lifes? No I say kill em all off! Theres so many diffrent examples I can give you but it would take me way to long.An animal will Not rape your kids, wont attack you unless you provoke it, it wont sleep with your wife while your away at work, wont rob you, wont steal your car......Yes I value an animals life more then certin human scum in walking this earth.

Well done mate!

Plus you're a bigger/better person than me.
I would have gotten the dog out, then kicked the a-hole in the canal and be done with it.

Then I would have called the authorities to pick up the dogs.
Maybe said that there's some bloke in the canal too. Maybe...

^ most likely yes!

However, in this case it was a good thing CPC held the guy as he knew about the boat / there could be other dogs there too.

So yeah, the alternate moral here I guess is to try and do the right thing, even if someone has just done something absolutely wrong.

He just sat there and waited for the guy to jump in, save the dog and patiently waited for the cops to come.
