When a man lost an argument and lost his temper with a woman on Monday, the man became violent and took his frustrations out on a homeless man’s dog who had just been sitting quietly nearby with her faithful owner.
According to the Cape of Good Hope SPCA located in Grassy Park, South Africa, the crazed man plunged an eight-inch blade into the dog named Meira’s back, lifted her up and kicked her before walking away. The dog was left suffering on the sidewalk until Inspector Jeffery Mfini quickly responded to the scene and transported the dog to an emergency veterinarian hospital.
Tragically, Meira was left completely paralyzed from the attack and had to be humanely euthanized.
Inspector Mfini put all of his efforts into tracking the dog’s assailant and found him. The suspect was charged and arrested on Tuesday.
“He was arrested on charges of animal cruelty earlier today by the Landsdown SAPS and will be appearing in the Wynberg Magistrates Court tomorrow.
We’ll be there tomorrow and we will be at every court appearance that follows until we can be Meira’s voice, tell her story and ensure that no other animal suffers at this man’s hands,” wrote the rescue organization who promises to be the voice for Meira and to ensure no other animal will suffer at the hands of this man.
Rest in peace Meira. We hope you find justice.
