The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) is looking for a man who was seen smiling as he slapped a dog around the face, which was sticking its head outside a car window.

The organization started an investigation after the unidentified man was seen in a social media footage mistreating a canine. The video showed the man approaching a Dogue de Bordeaux, who is sticking its head out of the rear window of a parked pick-up truck. He then checked around to make sure that no one was watching before making a fist with one of his hands while using the other one to slap the pooch across the face, Daily Mail reported.

The person filming the video laughed as the man retreated after carrying out the cruel act. The very next moment, a second dog peered out of the same vehicle and barked at him. 

The RSPCA has asked for the public's help in identifying and tracking down the man seen in the footage mistreating the animal. They suspect the footage to have been filmed in the United Kingdom because of the number plates of the passing vehicles but they could not confirm it. 

The man was described as a white male with fair hair. He was wearing black shiny shoes, black trousers and a white, long-sleeve t-shirt.

"We're keen to hear from the owner of these dogs. They may be completely unaware of this incident. We'd like to check that this dog is okay and gather some more information about him and what happened here," said RSPCA Chief Inspector Tony Pritchard. "We're also appealing to the public to get in touch with us if they recognize the culprit in the video."

Anyone with any information regarding the dogs or where this incident took place or who was responsible should contact the RSPCA appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
