ALREADY TRAILING TO San Juan, Bella Vista’s Enzo Jose Jimenez was clearly having a bad day. But that’s no excuse for taking his anger and frustration out on a poor wee pup who just wanted to be part of the action.

Picking a dog up by the scruff of the neck is one thing – the perfect way to carry a canine, in fact – but lifting him from the ground in a choke-hold before flinging him end-over-end into a six-foot high fence is just not on.

Straight red for Enzo and rightly so.

The dog looked fairly shaken up by his flight, but he was clearly one tough perrito, bounding back off the grass and moving off with its tail between its legs as Jimenez took abuse from all comers.
