During the game in Tucumán last weekend, a dog meandered onto the field and brought play to a halt.

In a bid to get things underway again, Bella Vista player Enzo Jimenez grabbed the dog by its neck, carried it across to the touchline and then attempted to hurl the poor canine over a metal fence.

However, the dog hit the top of the fence and bounced back onto the field.

Understandably, supporters at the game were horrified and showered abused on Jimenez, who then had to fend off a number of San Juan players who were furious at his shocking behavior.

Once everything had calmed down, Jimenez was given his marching orders for his cruelty to the animal.
