The RSPCA is appealing for information after a man was caught on camera roughly treating a dog in Bradford.
The incident happened at 3.30pm on Thursday (6 June) near Girlington Road/Willow Street.
RSPCA inspector Gemma Fowler said: “We’ve had a couple of calls about a man who was seen being rough and verbally abusing a dog as he walked down the street last Thursday afternoon.
“The area was quite busy as there is a school nearby which had just turned out.
“The incident was caught on camera by a witness.
“I want to hear from him, or anyone who knows who he is, as soon as possible.”
The man has a tattoo of three stars on the right of his neck and his right ear is pierced with a stud. He was wearing black jeans, a black coat and a camouflage coloured cap. He was wearing black Adidas trainers with white stripes.
The dog is a tan and white bull terrier type, and was wearing a red harness with a black rope lead.
Anyone who thinks they can help should call the RSPCA inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018 and ask to leave a message for Inspector Fowler.
“I am worried about this dog and am very keen to check that he or she is okay,” she added.
