 | April 24, 2017

The owner has been receiving death threats since footage of the incident went viral on social media.

burn-dogPETALING JAYA: Internet users are up in arms over a video of a dog, allegedly set on fire for chewing up its owner’s slippers.

In the latest clip of animal abuse to surface in recent weeks, a beige-coloured dog is seen huddled in a wire cage while a fire burns outside.

A man, presumably the owner, drags the cage over the fire, positioning it directly over the flames, which appear to burn the dog’s tail and hindquarters.

The 16-second video was uploaded on Facebook and quickly went viral. It was accompanied by a picture that seemed to show the dog’s charred remains.

According to theSun, however, the dog is still alive and will be adopted soon.

The paper quoted a report by Sin Chew Daily which said the owner had lodged a police report after receiving death threats. He has also apologised and wants the public to stop harassing his family, the report said.
