But where did the video footage arise from? Well, it’s all thanks to another passerby pet owner. Coincidently, she was also walking her pup at the same time. She described the exact point in time when the brutal dog owner entered into the driveway. It seemed as if little Adi ran away.
And that’s when he furiously went after her. Soon, you could see him bending down and grabbing her harness. And that’s when he beat the dog in the harshest manner imaginable. Luckily, the passerby recorded the entire episode on her cell phone. Soon, she decided it was time to call the cops too.
She reported the brutal owner to the police, who pressed charges against him. He also lost ownership of Adi. But in his defense, he claims that he was scolding his pooch. Moreover, he was afraid that Adi would attack another smaller animal. And on that note, he feels that it’s a whole big misunderstanding.
