Video Shows Man Trying to Kick a Dog Before Getting Amazing Dose of Instant Karma | 22 Words

Dogs. They're just incredible, aren't they?

I often find myself struggling to justify why I don't have my own dog... they're loyal, they're loving, and they make the best companions. What's not to love?

Yet, despite all of their amazing qualities, there are still some a**holes out there who enjoy treating our four-legged friends like complete dirt. There's nothing worse than animal abuse, so it's always nice when these people get a nice dose of karma.

And, brilliantly, video footage has gone viral this week after a man was filmed running at a stray pup with the aim to kick it, falling-over spectacularly, then being chased off by another pack of stray dogs. Karma, bitch.

Keep scrolling to watch the video, and to see this guy get the comeuppance that he deserves.

We don't deserve dogs.

Seriously, we really don't. They're cute, they're cuddly, and they're so damn pure.

They come in all shapes and sizes.

We apparently got bored with just one type of pooch, so years of breeding has resulted in there being thousands of different types of dog... and they're all adorable.

And they remain one of our nation's favorite pets.

Admit it, all of us pestered our parents for a pet dog at some point during our childhoods... or adulthoods...

But, remarkably...

There are some people out there who just don't like dogs.

Okay, dogs aren't for everyone.

And that's fair enough. But what isn't fair enough is when people neglect and abuse dogs, or any animal, for that matter.

Too many people still hurt and abuse innocent and defenseless animals...

And they often justify their actions through their religion's or country's traditions which, as British comedian and animal rights activist, Ricky Gervais, pointed out, doesn't make it okay.

And now, one animal abuser has gone viral for the best reason.

A video showing a man attempting to kick an innocent dog on the beach has been circulating online.

The dog appears to be a stray.

And, rather than just letting the animal be, the unidentified man decides to run up and try to kick it, much to the apparent amusement of his friends.

But people are relishing over the instant karma that the man received.

Because there's nothing better than a little bit of well-deserved comeuppance, is there?

The video starts like this.

The man is seen sprinting towards the dog in the distance, who seems unaware of what is about to happen.

He clearly makes a bee-line for the dog.

And his friends can be heard laughing in the distance as he sprints towards the innocent pooch.

However, just as he reaches the dog...

Karma strikes and the man falls over in a spectacularly comical fashion (I'm talking a "legs in the air" kind of fall here, people).

And, to make things even better...

As the man falls and the innocent dog dashes away in fright, another dog emerges from outside the camera shot and instantly runs towards the perpetrator, who scrambles to his feet and sprints away.

Then, all of a sudden...

A whole pack of dogs emerges and they all run in tow of the now-panicked man.

Then man then falls over again.

This video just keeps getting better and better, honestly.

The video ends with him in the sea...

And is subsequently surrounded by a lot of dogs, which he doesn't seem too keen on kicking anymore.

And, I have to admit, it is ridiculously satisfying to watch.

"Don't call this creature a man."

As expected, social media users were completely outraged by the video and were quick to jump to the defense of the animal.

People were shocked by the man's blatant animal cruelty.

And they loved how the other dogs ran to his defense, with one Facebook user writing: "Don't mess with my bro! That's what those other dogs are thinking. Straight up got your back for life!"

Moral of the story?

Karma is, indeed, a b*tch. Oh, and don't abuse animals. It doesn't make you big or clever... it just makes you an a**hole. Want to read another story of sweet and oh-so-satisfying karma? Keep reading!
