Shocking cruelty in South African capital as pet dog skinned alive

In the South African capital, Bloemfontein, rescuers were horrified on Friday night after a dog hit by a car but still alive was skinned by a man passing by, according to the SPCA

Police officers called the Bloemfontein SPCA for help and when they arrived, local residents were in shock.

“According to eyewitnesses, a car bumped a dog and drove away. The dog was still alive and lay along the road. The owner of the dog came looking for her dog and then came to a very gruesome scene. Sam Buti Didi was busy skinned (sic) her dog alive. She asked him what he was doing and Sam’s answer was that he was hungry and wanted a fresh meat. The owner and the community were furious and took Sam to their nearest police station. With the arrival of Bloemfontein SPCA, the dog was already dead.

The dog had still been alive as Didi butchered the defenseless animal.

“The dog’s body lay aside and then one leg was also laying skinned aside the road. We asked Sam what he was trying to do, and he acknowledged that the dog was still alive when he started his slaughter. According to Sam, he came from work and was hungry and saw the dog along the road. He was hungry and has a craving for fresh meat, so he skinned the dog alive. Sam did cut off the leg with a piece of glass. Sam also acknowledged that this was not the first time that he did such a thing. Sam opened his backpack for us and there was bread, polony and chicken nuggets, but he has a craving for fresh meat.”

The suspect has been charged with animal cruelty and is due to appear in court on Monday afternoon.

Animal cruelty has defined links with domestic violence. Pets are often the victims of “paybacks” in domestic situations. It is of prime importance to recognize and bring animal abusers to justice and help them receive the proper treatment – hopefully to lessen this very serious problem.

    I know exactly what should be done with this cruel, vicious, and evil piece of walking excrement, and it involves doing unto him EXACTLY what he did to this defenseless dog and what he admitted he did to many others. He is a monster!!! He deserves no mercy whatsoever.

      This is absolutely disgusting and unbelievable cruelty…… lock this POS up forever and please lose the keys!!!!!

      I agree with you: This disgusting POS deserves to be skinned and roasted alive (see how much he enjoys the experience)…… it will give him a preview of his eternity: burning in Hell for his cruelty…..

      Sadly, this POS is not unique (have to deal with reality)….. until animal protection laws are strengthened everywhere (even in the USA), are actually enforced and punishments are severe, we will continue to have POSs’ with extreme cruelty, treating animals purely as inanimate objects…..

      RIP precious puppy (& all others murdered by this POS)….. hopefully the POS who murdered you so cruelly will suffer a horrible, terrifying and agonizing death…… that would be justice!!! After he dies, he will burn in Hell for eternity as punishment for his cruelty…..

      Precious furbaby angel, I know you are in Heaven. Please look for MacKitty and he will introduce you to his wonderful snuggle buddies. You can RIP with loving friends…..

    We all agree that the same needs to be done to this man starting with his genitals. If he can survive and eat that, then continue cutting him up. I know this sounds disgusting, but what he did to a dog that was still alive is horrendous. He doesn’t deserve to live in this world any longer.

    Execute that savage maggot forthwith. Waste no time. An organism like that should not be allowed to exist because it isn’t human. It doesn’t even qualify as a non-human. Put a bullet between its eyes. I make no apologies for how I feel. This world has far too many cruel people in it and the world is getting smaller and resources are getting scarcer every day. No amount of resources should be wasted on filthy parasites like that.
