Cruel dog owner repeatedly throws terrified pet into London canal by its collar in sickening video

THIS is the moment a cruel dog owner repeatedly throws his terrified pet into a London canal in broad daylight.

The man can be seen hurling his pet by the collar in to Southall canal, West London, yesterday - as an onlooker films the horror clip.

At the start of the clip uploaded to Instagram, the man can be seen yanking the dog's lead above his head before throwing it down with force, twisting his body in a swift movement for extra power.

He bends at the knees to make sure the dog is under water, before violently pulling the animal out again.

The man, who is wearing a large Union Jack jacket, repeats the action five times.

On the final 'dunk,' he holds the pooch in the water for several seconds.

It appears to be a cruel attempt to make the dog - whose breed is unclear - struggle for its life.

At the end of the clip, which was recorded at 12.45pm yesterday, the man walks off with the dog still on the lead.

He picks something off the ground and hurls it back down angrily.

The RSPCA told the Sun Online: “We don’t have any further information on this incident.

“We would however, encourage anyone to contact us or the police if they have any information.”

The person who took the footage called the police, it has been reported.
