Dog-punching man in Nelson sought by RSPCA
A man seen in video footage repeatedly punching a dog is being sought by the RSPCA.
Insp Charlotte Brooker said the animal - thought to be an American bulldog - was "clearly petrified".
The incident took place in Hendon Road in Nelson, Lancashire, at about 15:15 GMT on 10 December.
A member of the public filmed the attack and gave the footage to the RSPCA, which said it was "extremely concerned" for the dog's welfare.
Insp Brooker said: "We hope that the images of him and the dog - a large white bull breed, we think probably an American bulldog - along with the location and time this happened will mean that those who know him will recognise him, and call us."
