Recently, netizens reacted with anger and shock when a 9-second video went viral on Twitter showing a passenger in a white Myvi pulling a dog on a leash while the car was moving.

According to Malay Mail, police confirmed that the dog belonged to the vehicle’s passenger and that the incident happened at Taman Sri Skundai, Johor Bahru.

North JB district police chief Asst Comm Rupiah Abd Wahid said investigation into the video found that it took place at about 2pm on Friday (8 April).

“Our investigations revealed that the dog was their pet. The dog had gone missing and was found in their residential area in a dirty and flea-infested condition.

“The son thought it was inappropriate for the dog to be brought into the vehicle. So, using a leash, the mother decided to pull the dog from the passenger side with the window open while the son drove the car slowly,” he said in a statement yesterday (10 April).

Rupiah said the duo had been released on police bail after their statements were recorded. He added that the investigation paper had been referred to the Johor deputy public prosecutor’s office for further action.

The case was investigated under Section 428 of the Penal Code or Section 44(1)(a) of the Animal Act 1953.
