A woman and her dog were hit by a car in an apparent hit-and-run that killed the poor pooch, as shown in shocking CCTV released by police.
In the clip, a blonde woman wearing a red top walks her dog at the side of the road when a black Astra passes on the opposite side in Birmingham.
Seconds later, a second black car appears and spins straight into the woman and her dog – throwing her on the bonnet as it ploughs over the grassy verge.
The CCTV shows that the black car travelling in front has stopped on the road.
A woman and two men then appear to exit the car that crashed into the dog walker and run away on foot.
The CCTV has been released as police hunt for information about the tragedy.
West Midlands Police said: "We’ve released this shocking footage as part of an urgent appeal for information.
