Snatched puppy returned

November 2nd 2015

Animal rights activists who snatched a puppy from a homeless man in Paris are to return the dog following public outcry.

A video [Caution: you may find this distressing] of the incident was captured by a passer-by and shows activists from Cause Animale Nord struggling with the man as he tries to keep hold of his dog, before capturing the pet and running off down the street. On their Facebook page, the activists accused the man of “drugging” the dog to stop it running away, reports The Telegraph.

A petition on demanding an enquiry was signed by over 245,000 people. The president of the association was released by police after he promised to take the dog back to its owner.
