Video appears to show a man trying to kick a dog before getting an incredible dose of instant karma

Dogs are kind of amazing, aren't they? Not only are they cute, fluffy, and all-round entertaining creatures to be around, but they are fiercely loyal to their adoptive families. Their joyous, loving demeanour and general excitement at being alive means that, let's be honest, they are a lot more fun to hang out with than a lot of humans out there.

I can just about understand someone preferring cats, or not particularly liking dogs if they haven't had the chance to actually spend time with one. After all, to some they can seem like excitable, drooling idiots that cause havoc and are incredibly expensive to look after. However, what remains a complete mystery to me is why someone would hate a dog, or for any reason try to attack one.

Unfortunately, there are some people out there who will do just that. One man was hanging out with some friends on the beach when he spotted a stray dog on the sand. Rather than just letting it be, he decided to run up and try and kick it.

However, his attempt didn't exactly go the way he expected it to. After his initial attempt to attack the dog failed, he found out that the dog had more than luck on his side. Take a look at what happened in this recently resurfaced video.

If there's one thing this man should have learned, it's that you should treat all creatures as you want to be treated yourself. Otherwise, you might end up on the receiving end of some bad karma.
