A DOG was filmed being beaten and kicked in a sickening attack — by a girl aged TWELVE.
The schoolgirl was seen kneeing, slapping and stamping on stunned springer spaniel Jasper in the 13-minute film.
She whipped him with his lead, then stood on his tail with one leg while kicking him with the other.
The girl is seen kicking the pup 14 times, kneeing it 26 times and hitting it with its lead eight times. She slaps it 17 times and stamps on it ten times.
Last night Jasper’s owner Ray Green, in his 60s, choked back tears after seeing the horrific film. Mr Green, who uses a mobility scooter, had let the girl — the daughter of a close pal — take the 18-month-old dog for walks.
But after seeing the video he said she would never walk Jasper again.
Mr Green, of Keighley, West Yorks, said: “I’ve seen enough.
“I can’t believe it. Jasper is a playful thing and is well-treated.
“She was supposed to be teaching him to walk on a lead. What she did is not right. I am really shocked.”
The girl’s family were stunned when they saw the video — and revealed they had thought that she was an “animal lover”. The family has a cat — and had planned to buy the girl a puppy.
Her stunned dad shook his head in disbelief after seeing the film with Mr Green and said: “I don’t understand where this has come from.
“She loves animals. She walks a few people’s dogs. A man down the road said she’d end up a vet.
“She’ll not be getting a dog now. I can’t believe what I have just seen.”
He said he would be talking at length to his daughter — who he said would be “grounded”. The attack was filmed by a neighbour in a field near his home. The neighbour, who asked not to be named, said he filmed it as evidence after seeing previous abuse.
He said: “I’d seen her jerk his lead before but nothing like this. I couldn’t believe it. It looked like torture.
“The dog was cowering. It tried to defend itself but she just punched it hard. She should be banned from having a pet for at least ten years.
“In a few years she might be a babysitter and who knows what she might do. I couldn’t believe it was able to walk after all she had put it through.
“It must have been bruised all over. I hope the authorities take some action.”
