The scene took place only a few days ago at the Wollishofen tram station. A video now going viral shows a retired man brutally hitting his German Shepherd Dog.

The act was so deeply shocking that a passer-by decided to take his phone out and start recording. Thanks to the video, this cruel man was identified.
A chilling video
In the video, you can see the German Shepherd Dog starting to bark hysterically at something in the distance. The man, visibly incapable of controlling his dog, just doesn’t know what to do to get his animal to stop barking.
Unfortunately, the man is then seen violently grabbing his dog by the scruff of the neck and punching him in the face.
Saved from an undeserving owner
The video was shared on social media and soon went viral. Thankfully, the video served it’s purpose and soon caught the attention of local police.
“We received the video Tuesday night and have found the animal’s owner. The young bitch was immediately transported to the veterinarian’s,” an officer told 20 Minutes.
As we speak, the dog is now being kept safe and sound at a local shelter. Her exact location is being kept private in order to make sure the owner doesn’t try to get her back. Evidently, he is unfit to keep an animal, and the dog was seized from him.
We hope this lovely dog will soon find a loving new home!
