On a Utah highway a witness recorded a dog balancing in the back of a flatbed truck and he send the video to The Humane Society of Utah. In the footage the driver is going more than 70miles-per-hour while the dog tryies balancing unrestrained, on the bed.
“The video just makes your heart stop,” Deann Shepherd with Humane Society of Utah, told Fox 13.
The Human Society post it on their Facebook account hoping to start a conversation and change revolving this issue. According to Arizona Humane reports, around 10.000 dogs pass away in accidents each year due to riding in a truck bed.
Right now, in the state of Utah owner will face charges only if the animal dies or is harmed in an accident while being unrestrained, so only when there is to late for the animal the owner will be punished. The Humane society will keep fighting to create legislation that will prevent truck bed associated dangers saying they have received countless videos and pictures of poor animals falling off the trucks.
