Officers investigating an animal cruelty incident in Bournemouth have released CCTV images of this suspect.
It was reported that at around 6.55pm on Sunday 14 April 2019 a man was seen to physically abuse a dog in the beer garden of the Buffalo Bar off Holdenhurst Road.
CCTV footage shows the man picking up a large black dog, throwing it against a fence, punching it in the head and picking it up by the throat.
He then dragged the dog away along Holdenhurst Road.
Police Constable Emily Watkins, of Bournemouth police, said:
“The footage of this incident is very disturbing and we have made attempts to identify this man, however these have so far been unsuccessful.
“I am now issuing an image of the suspect in the hope that someone may recognise him.
“I would ask anyone who knows who he is to please contact Dorset Police so we can investigate this incident with colleagues at the RSPCA.”
