A picture of a dog tied to the back of a semi-trailer driving up the highway has upset many dog owners in Australia.
The dog always seems to be hanging upside down, with a piece of rope connecting it to the trailer.
The picture was taken by Katie Cole while she was driving on Queensland’s Ipswich Motorway on Saturday, December 8, 2018, and it was posted on Facebook by one of her friends.
Celia was very upset as she watched the dog run up the back of the train, which she says was moving at about 100 miles per hour.
“Absolutely hilarious, how on earth does this person think it’s a good idea to tie a dog on the back of a semi-trailer with a bit of rope?!”
Clementine told the Courier Mail, “I stand for the dog. It shouldn’t be tied to the back of the trailer. This is dangerous.”
She told the person that she had given the information to the police and to the RSCA.
As a result, the RSI has begun an investigation. But it’s not clear whether some laws have been broken.
According to 7 News Brisbane, it is legal to travel with a dog in Queensland as long as the dog is properly leashed.
This is right, considering how many dogs pass away every year from riding in the back of a car. Not to mention the other risks that can happen, such as damage to the ear, eye, or nose, or being dragged up if tethered or thrown out.
Legalities aside, it is thought to be much safer to drive with a dog on the outside of a car.
