Instances of animal cruelty are winding up progressively normal. It’s about time that some severe laws be conceived against cruelty of certain individuals who treat creatures heartlessly and pitilessly.
Recently a dog suffered grievous injuries on Thursday after it was tied to a two-wheeler and dragged for about a kilometre along a busy road in Secunderabad.
The incident came to light when an animal rights activist, Vadlamani Murthy, took photos of the ghastly incident and stopped the motorist from hurting the animal further.
The stray dog, which was roaming inside Wesley Boys High School premises at PG Road, was tied to a two-wheeler with a rope by the school watchman G Srinivas. Principal K Jaswanth Roy told Srinivas to chase away the animal from the school’s premises.
A few days ago, a shocking incident of a stray dog being beaten by security guards in Mumbai, went viral. The dog was trying to take shelter from the heavy rain in a residential complex and the security guards beat it mercilessly with iron rods. In the video that went viral the dog can be seen struggling. Later the poor dog died.
Incidents like these hold testimony to the shallow nature of human beings who are blinded by success and status. On one hand, the rich of the country shell thousands to buy dogs as ‘status symbols’ while on the other hand, they despise homeless animals. Left at the mercy of these people, several strays are left to die in the so-called ‘developed’ and ‘urban’ parts of the country.
