The horrible act of a person stamping on a helpless dog 15 times in an attack described by an RSPCA inspector as "the worst beating ever seen" has been caught on video, Daily Star reported.

The person in the video has been identified as Matthew Hurst, the owner of the dog.

The 23-year-old abused his dog, Congo, after he either urinated or defecated on the floor, a court heard.

Hurst was heard shouting "what are you doing" while aggressively stamping on the black dog in a disturbing video that was given to the RSPCA by a member of the public.

He then grabbed Congo's head and slammed it to the floor.

The terrible incident was captured on video, and Ryan King, an inspector at the animal charity, was horrified to see it.

"The video showed a man sitting on a sofa, watching a black bull breed dog either urinating or defecating on the floor," said Ryan. "The man then stands up and proceeds to stamp on the dog with his foot around 15 times with great force, shouting what are you doing"

"He then reaches down to the dog, which is now lying on the floor, grabs it by the head, and slams the dog onto the floor again with great force several times," he added.

Ryan also said, "This is the worst beating I have ever seen during my three years as an RSPCA inspector."

Fortunately, Congo was saved and sent to the RSPCA's animal hospital, where the doctors discovered that he had suffered 21 blunt-force trauma to his abdomen, chest, and head.

Additionally, they claimed that the beating would have caused "fear, distress, and pain" for the dog.

Hurst, of Wigan, was charged with causing unnecessary suffering to an animal, contrary to Section 4 (1) of the Animal Welfare Act 2006.

At Wigan Magistrates’ Court on Nov. 17, he was disqualified from keeping animals for ten years and sentenced to a suspended 16-week jail term.

He will have to undertake 20 rehabilitation activity requirement days, carry out 120 hours of unpaid work, and pay £2,558 in court costs and a £120 victim surcharge.

Congo was signed over to the RSPCA by Hurst and will be rehomed in the future.
