Dog gets hit by car, spends 6 months slashing tyres in local village

Sleep with one eye open.

A DOG HAS been caught red-handed… er red-pawed vandalising cars in a village in England.

Residents of Brampton in Cumbria had endured six months of punctured tyres before police finally caught the culprit… a border collie called Jess.

CCTV footage has shown Jess attacking car tyres, puncturing them with her teeth.

This isn’t an unprovoked attack though. According to the BBC the dog was knocked down about 18 months ago and it’s thought that Jess may be exacting her revenge.



The Telegraph reports that residents in the area had believed that the vandalism was a targeted campaign. It turns out it was, in a way.

The dog’s owner has been contacted and has vowed to keep Jess on a lead from now on.

*Insert lame wuff justice joke here*
