Caught on a video and posted on Facebook, animal advocates are expressing their horror and disgust slamming the Mumbai, India man who ran over a stray dog, reports the India Times. And why? The customer service executive took revenge as he ran over a stray dog for peeing on the tire of his new car.
On the Facebook page, Feed a Stray. Everyday, animal lover Bala Mani described the horrendous act identifying Saurabh Dukhande as the alleged culprit, who reeked out his anger on a dog named Bandya, for picking his leg up on Dukhande’s new car. The post has since gone viral:
“Shameless guy…How can a human being be so cruel to innocent creatures? Just to take a revenge for peeing, he ran over his car on this baby while sleeping. Nowadays people are not leaving animals as well in taking revenge. He resides in Vasai Mumbai. Raised a complaint on him but as usual no action. The dog is suffering the pain and guy is roaming freely without any problem. Please make this guy famous by sharing this message so that some action is taken on him and no more such cruelty happens anywhere.”
Another animal advocate rushed the dog to a veterinarian hospital in Vasai, however Bandya will need to be transferred to a more specialized facility because of the seriousness of his injuries. It is not known if the dog will survive, and it is possible he will be left paralyzed with a spinal injury and broken legs.
Meet Ashar, Emergency Response Coordinator at PETA India, has filed a report with the Palghar Rural Police and an arrest is expected.
“Will be sending a letter to the employer of the accused about this gruesome act of animal cruelty in the capacity of an Hon. Animal Welfare Officer, appointed by the Animal Welfare Board of India – Government of India,” Ashar wrote on Facebook.
A Change.org petition has been created demanding justice for Bandya and an arrest for Dukhande.
