A Hyderabad dog breeder who abandoned his breeding dogs in a kennel has not been seen for at least a month- leaving ten dogs to starve a slow torturous death with no food or water. An abandoned dog’s dead body had been reduced to a “heap of fur.’
According to NDTV, of the ten reported dogs to have been discovered on Sunday, six had died and the other four are stated to be fighting for their lives. The owner of the kennel had not been on the premises for over a month; his caretaker absent for over two weeks. Area residents reported a terrible stench emanating from the property thus prompting them to call the police. A neighbor who went over to the property to investigate described the disturbing scene:
“There were insects all over the dogs that were alive. The pug’s face had insects too. Another dog was chained in one enclosure; the dog had been reduced to a heap of fur.”
By night time some of the bodies of the dogs had been removed, however local heartbroken and angry residents say the smell of the dead dogs still remains. The Blue Cross of Hyderabad, an animal welfare organization, is investigating. Police are assisting in the case.
As for the surviving dogs, rescue workers state there is only a slight chance the dogs will survive. It is unknown if the dogs were being bred or if they were stolen and being resold. Rest in peace poor pooches. We are sorry you had to suffer by the hands of horrible culprits.
