The viral video which came to light after being shared on the micro-blogging site has now divided Twitter and sparked a debate.
Some people questioned if the dog should even be sitting on a bike like this and if it was too big a risk for the dog to be on the bike on a busy road.
Absolutely. He's endangering the poor animal's life. Apart from the dog he has to also concentrate on balancing the basket in front.— Alfa Shenoy (@AlfaShenoy) January 7, 2020
I think the dog is not supposed to made to sit in bikes. They're not physically equipped to establish stability and grip.— கிருட்டிணன் - Krishna (@KrishnaTribe) January 7, 2020
While some applauded the dog's human and were simply happy to see the video.
