Whether it’s a lunch-time school yard kick-around or the upper echelons of the football pyramid, the old age ‘dog on the pitch’ scenario is nothing new.
Well, the scenario is nothing new, but this method of dealing with the issue certainly is. Whilst a gentle ‘shoo, shoo’ is the more common approach, over in the Argentine third(ish) division, one Bella Vista player decided to take a more aggressive approach.
We’d like to use that standard ‘no animals were harmed in the making of this’ disclaimer, but that would be a lie. It looks like the dog was harmed, even if he walks away rather jauntily. Crazy stuff.
