Man Ties His Dog To The Back Of A Truck And Forces The Dog To Run Behind It

Bartlett Police responded to a minor vehicle crash that happened along Route 16 in Glen, New Hampshire, but ended up uncovering an alarming incident of animal abuse instead, writes ilovemydogsomuch

The crash reportedly occurred right behind a pickup truck that was dragging along a helpless dog through the snow. The large black dog was tied to the back of the car and was physically distressed from having to keep up with the moving vehicle.

The poor creature barely escaped being hit by the passing vehicles. That is how one car trying to swerve away from the dog eventually got rear-ended by another car.

The cops later confronted the pickup truck driver, a 50-year-old man named Steven Illsley, and charged him with 2 counts of Class A misdemeanor animal cruelty and 1 count of reckless driving. He avoided getting arrested and was handed a summons. Another dog was also found in the bed of the pickup truck. As per onlookers, both of Steven’s dogs were tied behind the truck at one point of time.

Steven has defended his actions by saying that he was simply “corralling” his dogs, and that he didn’t intend to hurt or torture them. But the officers believe that the dogs were exposed to multiple dangers on the streets nevertheless. The owner’s negligence and recklessness not only endangered the innocent dogs’ lives, but compromised basic safety for everyone on the road. This investigation is expected to continue for a few days.
