In Pune, India, five despicable youths in an ultimate act of depravity, were arrested on Friday after two local residents witnessed the teens attacking a white dog in the nearby village of Sus for no known reason. According to the Times of India, the boys beat the dog until he bled profusely and became unconscious. The heartless culprits then tied a rope around the defenseless dog’s neck, attached it to one of their motorcycles and dragged the injured pup more than a mile until they left it in a spot outside of the village.
According to the Hinjewadi Police Department, senior inspector Arun Waykar stated the young men are residents of the village.
“We do not know why the youths killed the dog so brutally, but prima facie we suspect that it may have chased some of them when they were on their motorcycles, Waykar stated.
Animal advocate and activist, Anson Palakkal reported the boys have been booked under the provisions of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 and various sections of the Bombay Police Act. The dog was suspected to have been just five years old. According to Jammu Links News, two women software engineers witnessed the killing and narrated the heartbreaking situation to Palakkal via his cellphone.
When is India going to do something about all of this animal cruelty? Rest in peace sweet dog; you deserved better.
