Chalk this one up as one of those times that social media came to the rescue.  According to a report, a woman in south Texas took a video of a man dragging a dog behind his motorized scooter as the man traveled down a neighborhood sidewalk. 

Melissa Torrez was on her way to the store, but when she saw the German Shepherd being dragged she decided to take action by recording the event and then posting it on social media. Torrez also called the police to report the incident, and after showing police the video, law enforcement went to the man's home and arrested him.

The good news is that the dog is going to be fine, and that dog along with the other pets belonging to the man on the scooter, have been removed from his home.
