A Melbourne dog owner claims a man shouting homophobic slurs attacked her dog because of the ‘Equality’ scarf the innocent pooch was wearing.
The man allegedly tried to kick the dog, named Mack, who was being walkeded in a park by a dog sitter.
Mack’s owner, Claire Sutherland, posted on Twitter that the “mouth-breathing cretin” who perpetrated the attack was “shouting homophobic slurs” at the time.
“[Mack]’s totally fine.
“[The] kick didn’t connect and our dog sitter gave the guy a mouthful. Didn’t sway him on his vote at all!”
Triggered by an Equality scarf
Later writing for News Corp, Sutherland alleged that the perpetrator called the dog sitter a “perverted f-cking poofter.
“Honestly Australia, have we reached the ‘shouting at dogs’ stage of the marriage equality debate? How did we get here?” she wrote.
