Two videos showing a man hitting, kicking as well as dragging and lifting a dog by its neck on a leash have sparked outrage online.

The incident is believed to have occurred at a terrace house in Loyang Green this morning (May 23).

Facebook user Maimunah Mohadi had uploaded two videos of the incident online, which Stompers LanetteDickson, Wati, Edwin, Kim and Muhsin alerted Stomp to.

The videos shows the man talking down to a Husky and forcefully dragging it around by its leash numerous times, in the presence of two other dogs.

He also punches the dog in the face once and kicks it twice in the 40 seconds of video recording.

According to Lanette, her friend Mainunah said that "she has heard the dogs many times yelping in pain but today was the first time she managed to video" it.

Mainunah added that she has reported the incident to the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA).

The case is currently under investigation.
