In a recent shocking case of animal cruelty, three men from Mohali thrashed and blinded a pregnant dog after she tried chasing their farm hens. The incident that happened on October 11 at Raipur Kalan village in Sohana has sent waves of shock across the village.
The three acuused Makhan Singh, Harmeet Singh and Dassa reportedly caught the pregnant stray dog when she entered their property. They thrashed and then hung her from a tree before moving on to the extremist level. One of them rushed inside the house to bring a machete, which is a sharp knife mostly used as a weapon. Using the machete, two held the dog while the third stabbed the stray dog’s eyes till she was left blind.
After all this, they freed the dog. The reason for all this inhumanity being the dog had entered their property to devour their pet hens.
Off late, many such cases have been coming to the light, one last reported was from a medical College in Chennai where two students just for fun had tortured and threw a dog from the terrace. While animal welfare associations take prompt actions in such cases, the need to stop them is an even bigger priority.
