Police in Turkey arrested a man suspected of torturing a defenseless puppy after the disturbing photos of the maimed animal went viral on social media Thursday. The puppy, whose paws and tail were deliberately cut off, was found in a forest in the Sapanca district in the northwestern province of Sakarya and rushed to an emergency animal hospital for treatment.

According to the AhvalNews, President Tayyip Erdogan addressed an election rally in Istanbul, stating that the detained suspect was a construction machine operator. With an election looming so close, both government officials and politicians on both sides publicly condemned the heinous act and are calling for stricter laws against acts of animal cruelty. At this time, current laws are said to be very lenient although legislation has been pending in parliament for months with little progress.

“Whether at home or on the street, we will take the law into consideration and evaluate it. This operator was arrested today. The authorities in Sapanca ordered his arrest,” Erdogan stated during a rally speaking with supporters in the upcoming elections. “There is nothing acceptable about this, but it is very important to show this awareness.”

Social media claims stated the pup’s legs and tail could have accidentally been hacked off accidentally by a bulldozer, however veterinarian reports stated the puppy had been intentionally tortured.

“This brutality against a small being is a painful manifestation of the loss of values in our country. I hope to God that those who hurt a small puppy find what they deserve in the afterlife,” Iyi Party leader and presidential candidate Meral Aksener wrote on Twitter.

The puppy died during surgery.

    Poor sweet puppy! Mohammad hated dogs and taught his followers to hate them as well. I’m glad to hear that Turkish leaders are calling for punishment for the sadistic perp. I’m surprised, but glad to hear this.

    Will they go after the construction worker and prosecute him for what was done to this sweet puppy. I can’t even imagine what actually happened to cause this poor pup to suffer. Although he did not survive the surgery, he was still there to want help. Look at that innocent face and wonder how and who someone would even contemplate doing such a vile and heinous crime against this sweet pup.

    The psychopathic depraved animal torturing monster who deliberately tortured a defenceless and innocent puppy by cutting the precious little puppy paws and tail off must be put to death by the same animal torture and suffering this monster committed against a defenceless and innocent little puppy.
    I am absolutely sickened by the unimaginble torture and suffering these psycho depraved animal torturing monsters are committing against the innocent and voiceless, just for their vile and evil thrill of torturing such defenceless and innocent sentient beings.
    Much stricter Animal Protection Laws must be introduced Worldwide that all animal torturers and abusers are put to death. An eye for an eye.
    This is the only way these psycho depraved animal torturing monsters will stop their deliberate and heinous torture of such defenceless and innocent sentient beings.
    Eradication from our planet earth is a must.
    RIP little puppy.
    These vile and evil animal torturing monsters on our planet will be punished by the death penalty and suffer in agony until these POS monsters die.

The Death Penalty to all animal torturers and abusers must be introduced into all Animal Protection Laws immediately.

    The Nassau County psychopathic depraved animal torturing College student monster who beat an innocent and defenceless dog to death must be put to death by beating this vile and evil animal torturing POS to death. This monster should have been put to death not just an unbelievable low fine of 2 weeks in jail for taking the innocent and trusting life of a precious and innocent dog. Being sentenced to only 2 weeks in jail is an absolute disgrace. This is definitely not Justice for the life of an innocent and helpless dog this monster ended, it is purely an insult to the justice this precious dog deserved. This animal torturing monster will continue taking the lives of the innocent and helpless if not eradicated from our plane t earth. If I could get to this vile and evil monster he would know what it is like to be bashed to death. Die you vile and evil animal torturing monster. Just looking at this Asian monster what else would you expect. The vilest of animal torturers and suffering Worlwide.
