I've recently become aware of the following happening in my area: a person who I don't know (but I know those who have seen this happen) exercises his Border Collie by letting it run free behind his car on a relatively quiet country road, sometimes for a distance of 3 or 4 miles. This doesn't happen every day, it's seemingly occasional and pretty random. The dog isn't tied to the car. The dog apparently loves it but of course, despite the road being relatively quiet there is still light intermittent traffic and naturally there is a risk of the dog being injured or an accident occurring with other road traffic. I've been told that this has been on ongoing for at least a year. Various local people have had a polite word with the owner about this but he takes no notice. I guess the next step is to get the police involved, or is there a 'better' solution? I've wondered if the people who have seen this should notify the RSPCA but I'm not sure if they would do anything. Another problem is that of proof - all we have is the word of these people against the owner's word, nobody has a video of this and all have been isolated reports, so there's been no other witnesses when the act has been seen. What's likely to be the best course of action here? As mentioned, I've not seen this myself but the people who have are good and trustworthy; if it goes to the police and the guy is prosecuted then he goes to court, witnesses are required, etc and during this Pandemic I can't imagine much being done.
