This cruel story took place late last year on a stretch of motorway between the Polish towns of Różan and Ostrów Mazowiecka.
The witness was following a truck, which suddenly started to slow down. The truck driver then leaned out of the window and threw a rubbish bag onto the embankment.
A shocking and cruel story
At first glance, our hero thought it was full of trash. But as he got closer, something told him to stop. And thank god he did. Because this wasn't a bag of rubbish; it was a terrified puppy! How could anyone be so cruel to something so helpless?
The good samaritan called the police and animal rescue workers, who arrived on the scene shortly after. Unfortunately, the man couldn't recall the truck's licence plate. But he did give a detailed description of the vehicle and police are still investigating.
Praying for justice
As for the puppy, she's still under the care of the friendly team at the Wąsewo Kennel Rescue. Unsurprisingly, the little furball was a bit shaken up by the incident. However, she sustained no serious injuries and the staff are impressed with her progress. She'll go up for adoption within the next few weeks.
If caught and convicted, the truck driver would face a large fine and up to two years in prison. Let's hope justice catches up with him before any more dogs are hurt.
