From The Local:
The brief yet startling video shows two members of the Lille branch of the group Cause Animale Nord wresting the small puppy from the homeless man on a busy street near Chatalet.
The clip starts with the man from the rights group wrestling with the homeless man on the pavement.
After shrugging off the beggar’s attempts to get his dog back, he then marches off with animal, while being chased by the homeless man, who is visibly highly distressed and moans continually.
A woman, presumed to be another member of the group follows behind, pointing at and shouting at by-standers: “It’s forbidden by the law. It’s forbidden by the law.”
