Top lawyer is filmed dumping his dead Labrador by the side of a road in South ...

A top lawyer has been caught red handed in this shocking CCTV footage pulling over by the side of the road and callously dumping his dead family pet in the gutter and driving off.

The unnamed high flier has been slammed on social media after stopping his flashy Mercedes and furtively looking all about before he carries out the disgraceful act.

He then leans into the boot and picks up the loyal hound and drops it on the tarmac like a bag of rubbish before jumping back in his luxury car and driving off.

The outraged Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) launched an investigation after being handed the footage of the disgraceful scene in Johannesburg, South Africa.

After tracing the driver through his number plate they were equally shocked to find the alleged culprit was a top lawyer for a prestigious company.

They discovered that the pet Labrador was called Mbali and had been adopted by the family 13 years ago when it was a puppy. 

The man adopted the dog from the same SPCA branch who is now threatening to prosecute him.

TimesLive reported the man had admitted to his bosses that he had dumped the body of the family pet in the road and he agreed to meet with the SPCA.

The Sandton branch of the SPCA is considering pressing criminal charges for the illegal dumping of a dead animal under the terms of the by-laws of the City of Johannesburg.
