Sussex police in the U.K. say a beagle-collie mix was deliberately dragged behind a Porsche and are asking for tips from the public or witnesses to come forward to aid in identifying the perpetrator.
The crime took place near Brighton at Devil’s Dyke car park on Sunday evening. About thirty minutes later the same car was seen still dragging the dog near the Southwick Tunnel. The dog suffered fatal injuries and was found by police.
If you saw what happened, call the non-emergency Sussex Police number on 101 using serial 1416 of 20/11.

It is important for anyone with knowledge of such crimes to report what they know so the perpetrators do not get away with the crime. Animal cruelty and abuse is far too frequent, and members of the public can help prevent it by ensuring criminals are caught and punished. Sometimes in such cases even a small amount of extra information can help investigators solve the crime.
