The RSPCA has launched an investigation after a photo of a puppy inside a cage, strapped to the roof of a 4WD, was posted online.
The image was shared to Facebook on Saturday by a shocked witness who reportedly spotted the car travelling on the Bruce Highway in Queensland.
The photo immediately went viral, with dozens of people questioning why the pup wasn’t inside the vehicle, especially on such a hot day.
