A pet owner in China has come under flak after he went on a jolly ride around Sichuan province with his dog sitting on top of the roof of his vehicle. The animal was neither made to wear any protective gear nor was it properly fastened with a harness or a rope during the ride.
The incident was caught on CCTV footage and was subsequently flagged by the police, who later questioned the owner. According to a DailyMail report, the person claimed that he put the dog on the roof as there was not enough space inside his vehicle. He further said the animal “well trained” and could not have fallen off the car.

Since being shared by the Leshan Traffic Police, the video has prompted angry reactions online.
