Father SLAMMED For Pulling Distraught Daughter Around

A father has been caught on camera allegedly dragging his five-year-old daughter around by her hair. 

It's alleged the man wrapped the little girls hair around the top of the shopping trolley he was pushing as he walked around a Texas supermarket. 

Alarmed shopper, Erika Burch said she took the photos to send to police. She alleges the little girl was crying, saying 'please stop. I promise I won't do it again. Please stop.' 

Erika said she approached the father and asked him to stop, but was told it was none of her business. 

The mother of three said, 'I'll be damned if I'll let anybody pull (my kids) them by the hair of their heads.'

After reporting the incident to police, she was told they could not investigate unless the child had visible signs of injury. 

The distressed mother took to Facebook posting the photo in a hope it would prompt the authorities to act. The post has since gone viral and the incident is now being investigated as a child endangerment case. Talk about the powers of social media!
