Video: Woman "walks dog" while driving her car
STOCKTON, Calif. (CNN Newsource) - The search is on for one lazy dog walker, who could have killed the animal. Cellphone video captured the woman driving around in her car, with her dog on a leash outside the vehicle.
Amanda Brajkovich decided to follow the driver when she saw the animal being pulled along."If you have a dog and you don't feel like getting out to walk it, then you shouldn't have a dog," she said.
The video quickly went viral and caught the attention of Phillip Zimmerman from the Stockton Animal Services Department."We have a lack of humane education not only for adults obviously in this case but children as well," said Zimmerman. CNN affiliate KOVR said Zimmerman could recommend a charge of animal cruelty for the woman. Under California's penal code, 597T,
"THE LEASH, ROPE, OR CHAIN SHALL BE AFFIXED IN SUCH A MANNER THAT IT WILL PREVENT THE ANIMAL FROM BECOMING ENTANGLED OR INJURED..."
