Poor dog. I hate cages for animals in cars, they are so dangerous.

At least the Dog was contained within the cage.
As a dog owner I find it incredible that some dogs are unrestrained in vehicles. Don't people realise that in the event of an accident the animal is likely to become airborne and suffer (or cause to other occupants) potential life threatening injury.
My dog has a harness which keeps her secure.
As I said at least this Dog was not thrown around other than in the cage.
Very distressing for the animal though.
