A dog that was hit by a car on the motorway has been found stuck in the vehicle’s front bumper and needed to be cut out by mechanics after the driver tried to pull it free by its ears.
The incident took place at a toll gate in the city of Macheng in the eastern Chinese province of Hubei when staff members noticed the poor pooch trapped in the car’s front grille.
According to reports, the driver was shocked when officials told him there was a dog stuck in the bumper because he had been driving on the motorway for a long time.

Police arrived and told the car owner to remove the animal from the front of his car, but the poor animal was firmly stuck and even tried to bite the driver.
After a while, the car was taken to a workshop where mechanics removed the bumper and managed to rescue the dog.
Reports said that the pooch ran away immediately after being freed.
Police believe that the dog was hit by the car on the motorway and miraculously managed to survive.
Meanwhile, the car owner said that he was unaware that he hit an animal while driving, and would not have known that the dog was under his bumper if the toll staff had not told him.
