A motorist has shared a disturbing footage captured on the streets of Plymouth, Devon. The person was passing through a busy roundabout, when he noticed a woman cycling while dragging her tiny dog on leash behind her. She held the dog’s leash with her left hand, while the 2:30 PM heat was visibly taking a toll on the dog.

In this video, we see the dog having a hard time while trying his best to keep up with his speeding owner. The poor creature hustles his dainty paws in the blistering heat, but his owner shows him no mercy. At one point, the cyclist even lifts her left hand to signal at a turn, leaving the dog’s safety completely compromised.

The motorist eventually stopped and confronted the woman for her reckless and abusive handling of her dog. But the woman boldly retorted and said that she saw “no fault” in her actions. As the traffic was piling up, the woman sped away and the motorist was unable to do anything about the situation.
