Another video of a dog being abused has gone viral- this time in Subang Jaya, Malaysia. A couple were seen forcing their small French poodle to walk on its hind legs at a shopping mall; the man was seen kicking the dog to stand on its back legs.
On his Facebook page, Deepan Kumar shared the disturbing situation using a video as proof:
” thought I had seen a wide range of the worst humanity has to offer until right about 10 minutes ago. Sunway Pyramid, H&M entrance, 20:09, 9th June 2018.
I AM UNCONTROLLABLY LIVID. It’s one thing to train a dog, it’s a whole other f***ing thing to train it for public entertainment through literal torture (read: KICKING THE DOG AND CANING THE DOG). The dog had been walking up and down the walkway for so long, it kept falling back to its 4 feet out of painful fatigue but EVERYTIME the dog kept falling back, this repulsive excuse of a woman kept shouting and caning the dog to continue standing on two feet to amuse people.
THIS IS HAPPENING IN MALAYSIA. HOW IN THE ****. FACEBOOK, DO YOUR THING. FIND THESE A**WIPES.”
The dog, whose coat had been dyed red, was dressed in a costume. The two-minute video showed the poodle entering the store and “entertaining” the audience of shoppers standing on its back legs. Social media erupted into angry criticism towards the couple with many people promising to contact animal welfare associations for animal abuse.
Veterinarians agree that making dogs walk on their hind legs and in such an unnatural position can affect their joints which can lead to muscle and joint disease.
The video can be watched here. Be advised the video is graphic and shows violence against an innocent little dog. Viewing may not be suitable for everyone.
