Target: Prakash Javadekar, Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate, India
Goal: Applaud swift arrest of students accused of gravely wounding a dog.
A pair of Indian students have been arrested after a video surfaced of them throwing a dog off of a rooftop in the city of Chennai (Madras). The disturbing video created a surge of outrage, with an intense viral campaign emerging to identify and find such heartless individuals.
In the video, a man can be seen holding the helpless dog by the neck and dropping it from the top of a building. The man can be heard laughing as the dog screams in pain on the ground.
The incident, and subsequent calls for justice, are detailed in this ForceChange petition. Thanks to this intense attention, the men have been identified as students of the Madha medical college, and have also been arrested for “maiming or injuring” an animal.
This sequence of events has been extremely encouraging, as it shows that cruelty to animals will not be tolerated. Sign the petition below to thank the authorities for promptly finding the men who so senselessly wounded an innocent animal.
Dear Mr. Javadekar,
I am writing to applaud the recent arrest of two students from the Madha medical college after a video surfaced that allegedly shows them dropping a dog off of a rooftop. In the video, the helpless dog can be seen screaming in pain as the man who dropped it laughs. Such cruelty cannot be tolerated, and the individuals responsible must be held accountable.
The video sparked international outrage as countless social media users shared the video and demanded justice, and the swift arrest of these men proves that cruelty will not be tolerated. Thank you for responding so quickly to this unconscionable act of cruelty.
