(HOUSTON) September 24, 2021 – A heartbreaking case of animal cruelty was caught on video showing a dog being dragged by a rope behind a pickup truck as it drove through the Briarcreek of Aldine subdivision off Veterans Memorial. The videos show a person riding in the back of the pickup as it travels on multiple busy streets while the dog is helplessly dragged along the concrete for more than a mile.
The dog suffered severe road rash, a collapsed lung and bruising. She is now getting treatment and care by Houston SPCA veterinary staff. This is an ongoing investigation with Harris County Constable Precinct 1 and the Houston SPCA.
Suspected animal cruelty in Houston, Harris County, as well as 10 other surrounding counties, can be reported to the Houston SPCA at 713-869-SPCA or at www.houstonspca.org.
