Dude Cited For Riding Motorcycle With Pooch On His Lap

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Authorities in New Jersey said a man cited for riding his motorcycle with his pug on his lap told them he had been riding with the canine for years."


Perhaps you can forgive a college kid for displaying such poor judgment, but Gyula Szatmari, 56, is no spring chicken.


It`s a shame that this dude has been riding his motorcycle with his pooch on his lap, and he`s been cited only once before for improper transportation of an animal. The public needs to get involved, if you see someone mistreating or putting an animal in danger, call the cops!

Szatmari shouldn`t have been riding his motorcycle at all, it was raining. I hope the cops force him to take a class on motorcycle safety, and I pray the authorities take his dog away.
