The guy accused of kicking his dog in a viral video on the Gold Coast last month has failed to show up in Southport Court this morning.
32-year-old Brett Simpson from Reedy Creek was charged with one count of animal cruelty after a Facebook video of him harming his dog was viewed more than 125,000 times in two hours before being taken down.
His case has now been adjourned until May 14.
The court heard Mr Simpson adjourned his case due to courses he was undertaking.
