A man has been caught on CCTV appearing to hit and spit at his dog in Perth.
A video of the incident surfaced online on Tuesday morning, showing a man walking his dog on Swansea Street in the inner Perth suburb of East Victoria Park.
In the video, the man appears to yank his dog by the collar, hit it, and spit at it.
