Dog dragged a mile by forgetful driver

An 84-year-old man who pulled over to the side of the road to take a break, resumed his journey in central Sweden, forgetting that he had tied his pet dog to the tow bar of his car.

The unfortunate animal was dragged along the road in Dalarna for three kilometres last Sunday before his owner was alerted by the driver of the car behind.

The dog received such terrible injuries that it had to be put down and the 84-year-old man is suspected of gross negligence and animal cruelty.
