Outspoken and a very strong animal advocate, popular, British comedian Ricky Gervais tweeted he wanted to “kill” the horrible man captured on video, wielding a meat cleaver and using it to slice through a tied-up dog’s neck and head.
According to The Sun, the disturbing 30-second video had been filmed in China and posted to social media by Bella Lack who wanted to find the culprit she described as a “vile excuse for a human being.” The video showed the man walking up to the tied dog and slashing the innocent animal repeatedly with the blade. The terrified dog tries desperately to escape by jumping into the air but cannot get loose and is next seen beheaded.
Gervais responded readily admitting he may have been violating Twitter rules, but nevertheless tweeted:
Gervais is a high profile animal advocate and earlier in the month posted photos of another animal abuser punching a dog in the head in the front seat of a car adding “#ThereIsNoExcuseForAnimalAbuseEVER!!” That video ended in the arrest of the two abusers. Read more of that account here.
Gervais did apologize for posting the heartbreaking photos, but wanted to remind people it’s necessary to find these “sub human scum” and bring them to justice.
Rest in peace poor dog. Help this dog find some justice and identify this horrible animal abuser.
