Viral Video Shows Helpless Dog With Mouth and Legs Tied Being Thrown Into a Pond by Two Males
Mumbai – In response to news that a community dog has fallen victim to the criminal act of two teenagers – who tied his mouth and legs, threw him into a pond to drown, and hurled stones at him – People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India is offering a reward of up to Rs 50,000 to anyone who provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible for the torture of this dog.
Anyone with information about this case should contact PETA India‘s animal–emergency helpline on +91 9820122602 or e-mail [email protected]. Informers‘ identities will be kept confidential upon request.
Will you please consider sharing this information with your audience? It may be the only way to apprehend those responsible for this heinous act.
“We’re calling on anyone with information to come forward immediately – to help dogs and humans. As psychologists well know, violent people often start by abusing animals and then move on to target humans. Sixty per cent of women said that their abusive partners harmed or killed their dogs or other animals,” says PETA India Emergency Response Team Associate Manager Meet Ashar. “PETA India will reward anyone who can help identify the teenagers in the video.“
