A viral video believed to have been filmed in India shows a man repeatedly abusing a helpless dog because it can’t write the alphabet. According to the IBTimes, the 30-second clip has prompted animal protective organizations to search for the man and bring the abuser to justice.
The video shows the man holding a pen in the frightened dog’s paw and reciting the alphabet “ABCD’ while moving the dog’s paw to write out the letters on a piece of paper in front of them. When the dog has no idea what the man wants him to do and fails to obey the command, the man strikes the dog hard on its face. The film shows the man hitting the dog 11 times. The dog does open his mouth and bares its teeth, but that doesn’t stop the man from slapping the dog’s face again and again.
When the video was shared on social media, irate citizens demanded the video be removed. Now everyone is hoping someone will recognize the creep and use the video as evidence to bring animal cruelty charges against the man. Comments such as the following continue to be posted:
“I really want to know Who is this guy hitting the dog… this is a horrible video.”
“I hope he gets flogged like a slave someday,” another person wrote.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) hopes the man can be identified and punished. The RSPCA applauds people for stepping forward and turning in these kind of videos to help stop such horrible cruelty.
Anyone concerned about animal cruelty should call their local police. Be the voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.
