This is the shocking moment a pet owner was apparently caught on camera dragging a dead dog along the pavement - before walking off and abandoning it when rescuers tried to come to its aid.

Horrified commuters said they were left 'disgusted' by the sickening act which occurred in the Mornington Crescent area of Camden, north London, at around 9.45am on Monday.

One commuter alleges the animal's owner verbally abused her when she tried to help the black Labrador, which is believed to have died due to an illness, before attempting to leave it behind.

Horrified commuters said they were left 'disgusted' after spotting the woman apparently dragging her dead black Labrador along a pavement in Mornington Crescent, Camden, north London, at about 9.45am on Monday


One commuter alleges the animal's owner verbally abused her when she tried to help the black Labrador, which is believed to have died due to an illness, before attempting to walk off and abandon it altogether

The 26-year-old woman, who does not wish to be named but lives and works in north London, said she was told to 'f*** off' by the dog's owner when she rushed to help after it appeared unconscious.

She said: 'I was on my way to work and saw this woman arguing with a younger man.

'She had two dogs with her and one of them looked like it was lying down.

'The argument seemed quite aggressive so I went over and asked what was going on - but when I looked down at the dog I thought 'oh my god, it has passed out'.

'I looked at the dog again, and it was obvious that it was either unconscious or dead.

'Its owner was trying to drag it along the street and said to us 'f*** off, it's fine' and 'mind your own f****** business, he is just having a lie down'.

'Then she unclipped the dead dog's collar and went to walk off and just leave it there.

'It was absolutely horrible. I couldn't believe it - how could anyone just leave their dead dog's body on the pavement like that?

'I was just disgusted. People are sick.'

The eyewitness, who has dogs of her own, said the owner had another dog with her, a border collie cross with a long thick coat, which she claims was panting for water as temperatures soared to 21C in the capital.

The RSPCA confirmed there were no suspicious circumstances in relation to the 'tragic incident' while the Metropolitan Police said no further police action was required after officers removed the dead animal's body

The woman added: 'It was so weird - she was emotionless, then smiling and laughing.

'I and the other man who tried to help were both crying, and we were complete strangers.

'I am an animal lover myself and have only recently lost one of my own elderly dogs, so seeing that I couldn't understand how someone could be so emotionless.

'I was in bits when my dog died, and we did our best to give him a dignified end.

'I would certainly never have dragged him along the floor, or left his dead body there.

'If you do not care about your animals, why have them?'

The RSPCA confirmed there were no suspicious circumstances in relation to the 'tragic incident' while the Metropolitan Police said no further police action was required after officers removed the animal's body from the scene.

A spokesman for the RSPCA said: 'We understand that the dog had been unwell, had been to the vets and was due to return to the vets on Monday.

'Sadly, it seems the dog collapsed and died during a walk before the second appointment.


The commuter who witnessed the incident, a 26-year-old woman from north London who wishes not to be named, said she was 'disgusted' by what she had seen in a lengthy Facebook post shaming the dog's owner


Police put a cover over the dog before removing the body from the scene in Mornington Crescent, Camden

'This must have been very distressing for the dog's owners and we appreciate it must have also been very shocking and upsetting for members of the public who witnessed the incident and saw the body in the street.

'This appears to have been an extremely tragic incident in which a pet dog has suddenly died but there was no evidence to suggest any suspicious circumstances.'

A spokesman for Met Police said: 'Police were called on Monday to reports of a woman with a dead dog, on Lidlington Place, NW1.

'Officers attended and the woman was spoken to.

'Arrangements were made for the deceased animal to be taken away.

'At this stage there is no further police action required.'
