In Mexico City, The Most Heartless Dog Owner Ever Caught On Video

Worldcrunch

MEXICO CITY - We're not sure if this is fodder for a Disney cartoon feature, or a Stephen King horror movie: a woman in her car was caught on video by a fellow motorist trying to abandon her dog on the streets of the Xochimilco district of Mexico City.

The faithful pooch, who appears to be a retriever mix, pursues his not-so-faithful owner through busy traffic and across a highway overpass. Confronted by the man filming in the car behind, the woman first tries to escape -- and then denies that she was abandoning the dog at all. Judge for yourself... and try not to weep.

MAN: “649TSS (car plates) she just left her dog, abandoned him, is not stopping for the dog, I have been following her for a while... I will keep following her to see where she’s going, but she seems to not want to stop for her dog. Lets see what she says to me….(comes up to woman’s car) hey, your dog is following you! Aren't you going to pick him up?

WOMAN: I'm going to stop soon.

MAN: You could’ve already stopped.

She continues to drive…

MAN: You’re not abandoning him are you? I'm taping you, I will upload this video, your dog has been following you for a long time.

WOMAN: No, of course not, I love him.

MAN: You know your dog is faithful right? He has a life too you know? You have to take care of him! I will circulate this video on the Internet!

PARIS — Advocates of a "participatory internet" (or Web 3.0) dream of an NFT future for cinematic works and animated films, despite the fact that Bitcoin (and cryptocurrency generally) is struggling. Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are digital assets based on blockchain technology.

NFT converts say that digital objects could profoundly change the link between the general public and creators of cinematic content by revolutionizing the way animated films and TV series are financed. Even if, by their own admission, none of the experiments currently underway have so far amounted to much.
