A SICKENING video allegedly shows a woman spitting at a dog walker before kicking his pet in the head.
The 51-year-old was captured allegedly taunting and spitting twice at the victim who tried walking away in Hob Moor, York.
The woman, wearing a dark beanie, black trousers and a striped jumper, then appears to kick his Shiba Inu.
The raging owner immediately knocked her to the ground surrounded by a crowd of youths all dressed in black as a voice is heard screaming “oh my god.”
North Yorkshire Police confirmed a woman was arrested on suspicion of racially-aggravated assault and causing unnecessary suffering to an animal.
She was also quizzed on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon and possession of class B drugs and has been released on bail while police enquiries continue.
