The guide dog with a GoPro

Did anyone else see this article/video on the BBC about a man who fitted his guidedog with a camera to record the ignorance and discrimination that went on around him?

"The video came out of necessity. Kika was getting hit by peoples' bags and she was getting a lot of abuse. A woman stopped me one day and had a go at me for holding everyone up and said I should apologise, which was a real shock."

    People never fail to sadden me with their ignorance bad manners and absolute LACK of compassion. 

    That's why I work with live with spend my social time with animals and have done on my own for 20 years through choice! 

    Humans are meant to have a conscience are we not! 

    Hmm..!
