Man repeatedly kicks dog until it vomits blood and dies

 | May 14, 2016

Witness says the owner constantly tortured his Doberman and, at one time, chained it on a short leash, forcing it to stand for a week.


PETALING JAYA: A post about an abused Doberman in Puchong that was tortured and battered to death by its owner is making the rounds on social media.

It has outraged online animal lovers, who are aghast at the degree of torture the animal endured before succumbing to its injuries.

The post first appeared on Selangor SPCA’s website wall on May 11. The person who posted it, who chose to remain anonymous, said she had tried on two occasions to contact an animal NGO in Selangor to rescue the Doberman as its owner was constantly beating the dog.

She claimed the NGO failed to act on her complaint despite giving its assurance that it would.

In the latest episode of torture, the owner had punished the dog for barking by shortening its leash, forcing it to stand for a week.

The witness also stated that there were water and food bowls there but suspects the dog was not fed as it resorted to eating plastic bags.

On the morning of May 11, the neighbour woke up to find that the dog had vomited blood. It apparently succumbed to its injuries after being repeatedly kicked. The impact flung it to one end of the porch.

Netizens, outraged at the incident, have taken it upon themselves to file formal complains with the Department of Veterinary Services (DVS) and made police reports in the hope that this Doberman would get the justice it deserved.

Founder of another NGO, Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better, Wani Muthiah, when contacted by FMT said: “What has happened (to the dog) is reflective of the lack of empathy for animals, especially dogs.

“It is utterly outrageous and unacceptable for someone to beat to death a pet that should have been loved and cherished.

“It is time the authorities came down hard on such animal abusers. They should perhaps consider setting up a registry of sorts to blacklist and prohibit those who have a history of animal abuse from ever owning a pet.”

FMT was also made to understand that the owner of the Doberman has two other dogs, both Chow Chows, who he allegedly abuses as well.

Members of the public who witness cases of animal abuse or know of such cases and wish to lodge a complaint should email DVS Putrajaya at [email protected]; or DVS Selangor at [email protected]
