A running shoe ad is causing an uproar among animal lovers, according to a recent report from KTVI.

According to Business Insider, the ad infers the shoes are so good, you’ll ‘run your dog to death’. A man is shown leaning over a dog lying on the ground. The dog was not actually dead.

The company has since pulled the ad and apologized on Facebook, according to the report.
