In a viral video of a man beating a dog to death by repeatedly punching the terrified animal in the face and head, has resulted in an arrest of the suspected animal abuser. British comedian, Ricky Gervais, had been one of the more vocal animal advocates trying to track down the man shown sitting in driver’s seat of a car, hitting the dog over and over again.
“Who are these dirty, sub-human c****?,” Gervais wrote. “Surely someone knows? This video is f***ing horrible by the way and shows a beautiful dog being hurt, in case you don’t want to watch…”
According to Unilad, the short video is believed to have been filmed in Iraq or Iran. Many have stated the dog died as a result of the abuse. It has been reported by news outlets, the man has been arrested for animal abuse, however these claims have not been confirmed. In one tweet, an animal advocate wrote that the culprits were not only arrested, but also beaten for their heinous deed to an innocent dog. On Monday, a Twitter user wrote:
“Pam Mifud -They were found and arrested. Some people beat the sh** out of them before turning them in. Sadly they killed the dog first.”
The clip is believed to have come from Iraq or Iran. Protect All Wildlife shared the video clip on Twitter and wrote the “scum involved have been arrested.” Tragically, no one could get to the dog in time to rescue him from the savage abuse. The video brought, even the most stoic, to tears as the vile culprits laughed while they punched the dog over and over.
To say NOTHING,
To do NOTHING,
