Crazy subway lady.

This video was on the news titled "what would you do". Well first things first, this video was horrible to watch. Not so much because the dog abuse was that bad. But the video and then the squeel. I almost busted a spring. I understand he doesn't wanna be too obvious he's taping. But if your gonna do it. Do it better than this.
The lady did seem to be on something. Hopefully when she was escorted off the train. Mr police man was waiting there for her.

Ah yeah I remember seeing this on social media earlier today, happened to watch the video. Definitely something wrong with the woman from the way she was so fidgety and reacting to her dog who was absolutely doing nothing.

It looked like a man stepped up and confronted her. Good. Too often people walk by and just shake their heads, hoping that someone else takes care of it.

Today I was out shopping with my sister. We were getting into the car when my sister said, "there's a baby been left in that car over there." I looked at the thermometer in her vehicle, it was 79 degrees -- too hot to leave a baby in a car, even if the windows were cracked. I said, "Call the police." She said, "no. I am sure she will be out in a minute." I opened the door and said, "then let's just wait for her to come out, did she leave it running?" and I was going to just watch the time and in 10 minutes I was going to go into that store and raise holy bleep.

She said, "no, I'll take care of it."

My sister is younger than me by 11 years, but being a mother maybe has added maturity to her that I never expected. She went into the store and said to the lady whose car she thought it was, "Did you leave your radio on in your car?" eyeballing her significantly, "that will run down your battery." The woman rushed out of the store, pulled out, and left in a hurry.

I told her, I would have probably charged in there and said, "You?!? Did you leave a baby in the back of your car!?!" But my sister said, "she was a young mother, and the way social media is and everyone calling the police, it was probably better for her to just get a little shaken up, and not embarrassed and harassed, or have the police called. But the point is, we acted. The guy acted. We need more people who will act -- not break your windows in or call the cops for every stink bomb. But to not move until we are sure that something will be done, that the child is safe, that the dog is not being slapped and bitten.

Awful to watch.

One of my truly giant pet peeves is people who will stand around watching and talking and laughing and filming while another person or creature is getting the stuffing beat out of them. Sometimes there are whole crowds of people doing this and they still can't find the guts to say or do anything to help. Cowards.

yes, good for the young man to step up to the woman to confront her .

he was totally cool about it . Did not escalate or have a volley of cuss and curse .

someone raised a good son.

not good for the other young man who buried his head in his cell phone who sat within arms
reach of the woman and the dog .

Update on this:

TORONTO -- Authorities in Toronto have seized a dog that police say was seen in an online video being hit by its owner while on a subway train.
The Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals took the dog after executing a search warrant on Monday, OSPCA spokeswoman Alison Cross said Tuesday, noting that charges are pending in the case.

Some people need to be taught how to interact with their dogs. She obviously has not idea that the dog didn't understand her "stop it" rant. It just wanted her to calm down or get out of arm's reach. If it was nipping her, and she was nipping back to "show him what it is like" all that did was show the dog that she wasn't to be trusted.

I hope somewhere through this process someone offers to give her a few tips. Don't know if she would accept them but still. She looked like she was acting out of ignorance and frustration. Of course, neither of these excuse this behavior.

The latest on this:

The woman is facing one count each of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal and causing distress to an animal under the OSPCA Act.

She is due to appear in court on Oct. 11.
