A police complaint has been filed after a dog was alleged to have been buried alive under hot tar road construction in Agra, India. Social media immediately erupted into outrage when the disturbing incident was made public on Wednesday.

“Road construction company RP Infraventure Pvt. Ltd, constructed part of Fatehpur road over a dead dog in Agra. The dog’s body was removed after police complaint was filed, PWD has also sent a note to the company,” tweeted ANI UP, which also posted a photo of the tar being removed with a crane to lift out the dog’s body.

Witnesses however, have a different version of what happened and contend the dog had been buried under the hot tar while alive, and that during the time the dog had cried out in agony.

According to Outlook India, social activist Naresh Paras stated the following:

“A fresh layer of coal tar was being laid on the road from Phool Sayyed crossing towards the Circuit House and the Taj Mahal. A dog was sleeping on one side of the road. Instead of chasing the animal or removing it physically, burning coal tar was poured over it. Later, a road roller crushed the animal. The body has now disappeared…”

Twitter users have expressed their outrage and promise to help this dog find some justice. The project’s leader stated an investigation was underway and “those found guilty would be shunted out as punishment.”

Rest in peace poor pup.

    This is India where animals are nothing more than disposable objects – I hope those that do care do not let this go and the horrific cruelty dealt to this poor dog by RP Infraventure Pvt. Ltd and the employees who decided to dump hot tar on an innocent animal are held responsible. The inhumanity of the employees should be made public, names and addresses – and these horrible people should be fired, arrested and charged. I doubt any of this will happen, since India is well known for its lack of animal welfare laws – But maybe there are enough people who do care and can be loud about their anger – I sure hope so. This dog deserves justice.

    What that poor little pup must have felt when that hot tar was pored over his body as he cried out in pain. Then to top it off, these in human workers, crushed him to death with their roller. I find it impossible to believe that none of them saw the dog and could have easily moved him or gotten him up to move but instead thought it was funny since they obviously have no feels or care about their homeless animals. I do hope those who saw this happen have filed a complaint and these workers punished severely. What inhumane cretins live in these countries.

    The best way to solve that type of shit from occurring. Execute the whole fucking road crew. Put a bullet between each person’s eyes. Do it on live TV. With a warning saying “YOU DO SHIT LIKE THIS and YOU .. WILL .. DIE!!!! I guarantee it’ll either put a stop to it .. or slow down stuff like this from happening. EVIL .. BASTARDS!!!
