In East Malaysia, photos of a dog being dragged by a truck has sparked online outrage. The disturbing photos were posted online by Facebook group, the Brotherhood of Sabah Sarawak, a community organization with more than 37,000 followers, who states they “will fight back no matter how hopeless.”
And tragically, in this distressing situation, a dog is spotted being dragged behind a truck at what is believed to be located at Jalan Pandaruan. A police report has since been made against the driver of the truck, and the incident is now under investigation with charges possible under Sarawak’s Cruelty to Animals Prevention Act of 1963. According to the New Straits Times, Police Chief Deputy Superintendent Abang Zainal Abidin Abang Ahmad stated authorities have tracked down the driver shown in the photos posted on the organization’s Facebook.
“When men have no feelings… this event is happening d limbang recently… Let’s give this man pamos,” the group posted.
Anyone with information is asked to contact authorities. Cruelty knows no geographic boundaries, and it’s up to each person to help make this a more humane world.
