Horrifying footage shows a dog falling off the back of a moving ute while it was still tied up

  • A brown dog has been flung from the back of a moving ute in Queensland  
  • The 'poor doggo' dangled by its neck for 100 metres before the driver stopped  
  • At least two other dogs were tied up with leads on the back of the flat tray 
  • Dash cam footage of the incident sparked outrage after it was shared online  

A pet dog has been dragged by the neck for up to 100 metres after it was flung from the back of its owners moving ute while wearing a collar and lead.

The Queensland motorist had at least three dogs tied up on their flat tray when one fell over the edge and was left dangling by its throat. 

Hair raising footage shot from the dash cam of a nearby parked car shows the vehicle zooming through the 60 kilometre zone before coming to a stop.

The disturbing video, shot just after 11am on Thursday, prompted a 'viewer warning' when uploaded to the Dash Cam Owners Australia Facebook page. 

The brown canine can be seen bouncing up after making contact with the road, before being thrown into a series of vicious twists.

It then hangs dangerously close to the back wheel of the vehicle, possibly coming into contact with its spinning wrath.

The dark-coloured Toyota Landcruiser pulls over a short distance up the road, followed by a smaller while vehicle.

'It is Imperative to ensure that if you are transporting animals that they are secure and not able to fall off your vehicle like this poor Doggo,' the post read. 

'You are legally required to ensure your dog is safe, secure and comfortable while in transit. Considerable penalties apply for breaching the law. 

'An unrestrained dog can be considered an unsecured load. Penalties of up to $2,523 may apply if you don't comply (QLD).' 

Outraged Facebook users slammed the driver in the comments of the post, with several slamming the 'moron' for being irresponsible.

'That poor dog. F**k, maybe drag the driver along the road, roped by his neck and he might get a clue,' one angered social media user wrote. 

'Put the dog inside in the ac with you! My dogs have seat belt leads that clip into a normal seat belt then attach to their collars. Don't leave them out in the heat, with the threat of falling off!,' another added. 

One wrote: 'You see morons like this all the time with chains too long. It makes you wonder about the intelligence level of some ute drivers.'
