Harrowing footage shows dog being dragged along road by a woman in mobility scooter in Birmingham | Daily Mail Online

Harrowing footage showing a dog being dragged along the road by a woman driving a mobility scooter has sparked outrage online.

The distressing video clip shows the poor dog apparently unable to stand as it is pulled along a street by its lead around its neck in the Erdington area of Birmingham.

A person filming the footage from a nearby car shouts at the woman: 'You are hurting your dog.'

'You're hurting the dog. The dog's dead. You are hitting the kerb,' the person filming said as the dog was hit against the side of the kerb.

'The dog's gonna' die you know, bro? The dog's gonna' die, stop the f***ing thing, man,' the filmer pleaded with the scooter driver as the dog appears to try to stand up.

The elderly woman can be seen looking at the camera before seemingly turning away muttering something inaudible and carrying along up the road.

The clip has caused widespread anger after being shared by the Birmz Is Grime blog on Twitter with the caption: 'Who is this person? This dog needs to be found and rescued'.

One person commented: 'Why has no one stopped her?'

Another put: 'Has this been reported. It's horrific.'

A third wrote: 'Poor dog. I hope they find the lady driving and take the dog off her.'

One said 'absolutely disgusting. I really hope the Dog is ok' and another simply added: 'That's sickening.'

The RSPCA has confirmed they are looking into the incident and are asking the public to help provide information.

An RSPCA spokesperson said: 'This video is very shocking to see. It has been brought to our attention and is now being looked into by our experienced officers.
