(Newser) – In the continuing saga of Brits being cruel to animals on surveillance video, a man has been nabbed on CCTV dumping a limping dog and driving away. The dog eagerly follows his master to a park area in Dorset, then stands, stunned, as the man speeds off. "The dog tried to follow the car but couldn't because of the limp," said a witness.

Authorities are seeking information from the public about the man's identity and are trying to make out the car's license plate. The dog, dubbed Ginger, was taken to an animal shelter where she awaits a new owner. A British woman videotaped dumping a cat in a trash was charged this week with two counts of animal cruelty.
