Man Drags Dog To Death Behind Car

DALARNA, Sweden, Aug. 23 (UPI) — An elderly Swedish man inadvertently dragged his dog to death behind his car, officials say.

The man, 84, pulled over at a rest stop in Dalarna, Sweden, to let his dog relieve itself, The Local reported Tuesday. He then tied the dog to the tow-bar of his car while he made some phone calls in the driver’s seat.

The man evidently forgot about his dog and drove off from the rest stop.

After the man had drive almost 2 miles, another driver was able to flag him down to alert him of his mistake.

The dog was injured beyond repair and had to be put down.

The man may face charges of animal cruelty and gross negligence.
