One person commented: “Why has no one stopped her?”

Another put: “Has this been reported. It’s horrific.”

A third wrote: “Poor dog. I hope they find the lady driving and take the dog off her.”

One said “absolutely disgusting. I really hope the Dog is ok” and another simply added: “That’s sickening.”
