A Toronto woman is seen biting and hitting her dog while riding on a subway full of disturbed passengers, a horrific new video shows.
The three-minute recording shows the dog calmly sitting on the woman’s lap as she grabs it by the hair.
“Do you hear me? Stop it,” she’s seen telling the dog several times, slapping it so hard that her whacks are audible on the video.
It’s not clear what she’s telling the frightened dog to stop doing as she bites the K-9’s head. She even appears to pull hair out of her mouth after clamping her teeth down.

The video was recorded and posted to YouTube on Friday by a woman who says she witnessed the abuse on a Toronto Transit Commission subway.
“This trash non-stop hits her dog bites and pulled its hair,” the woman, Roxy Huang, wrote in the video’s description.
The woman — wearing a green top, yellow pants and green Crocs — squirms in the seat with the dog in her lap, making noises and shifting the abused pooch around.
When it tries to get away from her, the unidentified woman yanks its leash — so hard that it yelps.

Finally another rider comes along and tells her, “You’ve got to stop hitting your dog.”
The woman appears confused at first, asking “Pardon?” several times. She quickly becomes angry.
“Who are you?” she asks the man, whose face isn’t shown. “What the f— are you talking about?”
She then complains the man is standing near her, telling him to move to the other side of the train.
Meanwhile, another man is seen entering the train’s driver room.
“She’s biting his tail. She’s hitting him,” one rider is heard saying off camera.
The view of the woman becomes blocked, but Huang explains that she was removed from the train.
“The whole train stopped, more than 3 TTC staff walked to her and then she got off the train,” she wrote.
The fearful dog can be seen standing still as the woman calls for her. When he won’t budge, she’s seen picking him up.
“Someone like her should never own a dog or a pet,” Huang wrote.
