This is the moment a dog owner spray paints his French bulldog’s face, body and testicles red, sparking outrage on social media.
The incident was filmed in the city of Moreno in the eastern Argentine province of Buenos Aires and the video has been widely circulated on social networks.
In the footage, a woman is seen holding the dog and covering its eyes with her hand as a man spray paints the animal red.
The poor pooch appears to try to escape several times, but the pair pins it down and continues with the makeover.
After spraying the bulldog’s head, the man turns to its body and even the animal’s testicles are seen bright red at the end of the clip.
Local media identified the man in the footage as Martin Correa.
Netizen ‘Roxana Mariel’ said: “Why doesn’t he paint his balls and the woman’s genitals red? Stupid people!”
Facebook user ‘Claudia Gangitano’ said: “And what about the person filming? And the one who is watching? Are they too dumb to report it?”
It is unclear if the incident has been reported to local authorities.
