Justice for Dog Found With Leg Cut Off

Indian-stray-dog-by-Pebble101

Target: Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India

Goal: Increase animal cruelty punishments in order to ensure justice for animals who suffer extreme suffering.

A dog was found with its leg cut off, a deep gash in its shoulder, and one eye popping out of its head, likely due to an extremely hard blow to the head. The dog was one of many stray dogs that roam the streets of many major cities in India. Witnesses at the scene claimed that they saw someone attacking the severely mutilated dog with a machete-like weapon. The dog was left for dead in a fish market, but was fortunately found and rushed to a veterinary clinic.

Veterinarians were able to stitch up the bulging eye and treat the open wounds on the dog’s body. Unfortunately, not much else could be done due to the dog’s weak state. The dog is recovering at the Thane Society for Protection of Cruelty to Animals, but will likely require further treatment and possible surgery, which will be postponed until her fragile condition is improved. It remains unknown whether the dog will survive.

India’s lax animal cruelty laws have resulted in the rampant abuse, mutilation, and killing of animals all over the country. An animal welfare officer with Animal Welfare Board of India has seen 40 such cases in only one week. Recent notable cases from across India include dogs being thrown from roofs, burned alive, and beaten with metal rods.

In order to end this horrendous cruelty, the perpetrators of these crimes must be given punishments proportionate to their actions. Until India’s animal protection laws are toughened, these offenders will continue to get off with small fines. Sign the petition below to demand that animal cruelty punishments are increased so that officials can finally start treating crimes against animals seriously.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Modi,

A stray dog was recently found mutilated and near death on the streets of Mumbai. The dog had part of its leg cut off, a huge gash in its shoulder, and a bulging eye, likely due to a blow of extreme force to its head. Unfortunately, incidents like these have become commonplace in India because of lax animal protection laws.

Until India starts taking these crimes seriously, animals will continue to suffer this type of extreme cruelty. We, the undersigned, demand that animal cruelty laws are stiffened in order to ensure that those who abuse animals are properly punished.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    I will never ever spend my money on anything that says made in india , travel to yr hell hole of a barbaric slum of country and i will shout it from the roof tops what yr country does to dogs and elepants and cows yr supposidly sacred animal

  2. Mr. Ghandi appears to have been the only light in India’s pit! India’s government should bury their faces in shame. No respect for females, much lesser respect for animals.
    Why do all male-dominated countries that cling fiercely onto dated traditional views reflect the same social issues of cruelty and injustice? Western politicians are to weak to take a stand against fearing their “positive” image, and so-with say yes to all abuse
    .
    Hope that cruel SOB will experience same!

    OMG❗️😧 This is sooo horrible❗️😢

    Signed & Shared😡

  4. The person who did this should be punished immediately. India first needs to change the animal abuse laws and make it very strict and effective. Only then will people think twice before abusing animals. I must say that there are millions of stray animals in India and very few shelters to accommodate them. Most animals are not treated so cruelly
