The Soweto Animal Rescue has called out for the public’s help to find the man responsible for the brutal beating of a dog in south Johannesburg, South Africa on Thursday.
According to the Southern Courier, Jerry Selwane, speaking for the rescue organization, witnesses described hearing the agonizing howls of the dog echoing for miles. After the man, filmed in the video, finished beating the dog unmercifully, he walked away. The dog limped away to hide in obvious agony. Although Selwane has not been able to pinpoint the area where the egregious abuse occurred, he wants the culprit arrested and charged with animal cruelty.
