Cruel… or cool?

That's the debate being waged over this video of the world's first base jumping dog.

Rock climber Dean Potter stuck his pooch in his backpack and dove off a 13,000 foot mountain peak in Switzerland.

He claims Whisper, his dog, was completely safe.

That she was strapped in with a harness meant for humans heavier than him even.

And that Whisper was basically begging to go on the jump.

The UK's leading animal welfare group says the dog no doubt experienced significant stress and fear.
