Search is on for man beating dog whose agonizing howls echoed for miles

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.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Soweto Animal Rescue and Advisory Center or call 084.911.9459.

    You can’t beat this thing senseless since he has no brain, but you must beat him until he howls and cries, they let him live with bubba in jail.

      With all my heart I pray they catch this sub-human and that he pays for what he did to that little do…..Karma is a b____…..and she will get him….But I too am concerned for the little dog. Please let us know he has been found & will be ok…..it is this persons fault the little male went after the female. All owners of cats & dogs should spay & neuter their pets if they don’t want puppies or kittens.

    Ok, This is typical !! The person filming this SOB feels so inclined to post this but does not include any info on where, when, who!! Why do people think they need to wait for the Law to do anything, this defenceless, abused animal needs action NOW!!

    The people filming this and all animal abuse should face charges as well as the abuser. They are just as guilty as the person abusing the poor furbaby. If u are with a criminal that commits a wrong doing u go to jail too so why not the same for the ones filming the abuse
