What Would You Do If You Saw a Dog Carrier Attached to a Car on the Highway? | Pets - Yahoo! Shine

"It's sad, but we found out this story circulating on Facebook this past weekend is true. Someone was actually driving down I-95 at 70 mph from at least Georgia into South Carolina with a dog in an open airline crate attached to a cargo holder on the back of a large SUV."

Nothing new. They got the ideas from Mitt Romney. It's wrong no matter who does it. But don't know what I could do about it other than call the law but that doesn't always help.

Down here in the south it's pretty common at least now they are mostly putting them in crates as opposed to riding loose in a PU.

That's different than the dog riding in a crate in a pickup truck, how?

Because it's inches from the ground bouncing around on the highway going full speed - not to mention dirt and gravel blowing up in it's face. In a pickup it's protected by the sides of the HEAVY weight vehicle and not bouncing around because the TRUCK has SHOCKS.

It's not even safe crate wise, with home made WHEELS? It's a plastic crate not a road vehicle.

Not that I'd even put a dog in it in a pickup bed....

Mitt Romney didn't have his dog on the ground it was on the top of the vehicle. And that was in 1983.

If I saw something like that I would report it. Horrible, some people should not have dogs.

Agree, why would they not put the dog in the car? Even if you must crate inside the car it's safer and temperture controlled. Poor thing must of been scared out of his wits

Doesn't matter when it was or who did it- it was wrong. And i agree -having it so close to the ground is so much more dangerous. Wonder what some folks have in their skull.
