In New Delhi, India another egregious case of animal cruelty occurred on Friday night when the driver of a car is alleged to have chained a stray dog and dragged the helpless animal for over a mile in the Jubilee Hills section of Hyderabad.
According to the India Times, an animal activist witnessed the cruelty and intervened by rescuing the dog. Sravya Varma, a volunteer for NGO People for Animals (PFA) rushed the critically injured dog to the Animal Care Clinic at Banjara Hills for emergency treatment and then to the rescue where the pup is still fighting for his life.
“The dog, which suffered internal bleeding, is in critical condition,” a PFA spokesperson stated. “Also the canine has suffered injuries all over the body, including a fracture on one of its legs.”
The Jubilee Hills Police Department has since seized the vehicle as the investigation continues. A case was registered under “Sections 336 of the IPC and the Prevention of Cruelty Act, 1960.”
Let’s hope this dog gets some justice.
