Puppy Tortured to Death Finally Gets Justice She Deserves

 Radoslaw Czerkawski. He is charged with 12 counts of animal abuse, remains behind bars on $500,000 bond, and faces 55 years in prisonCzerkawski had gotten Doe for $40 on Craiglist.

Never, EVER give away an animal for free! And if you’re going to sell it or ask for a donation, thoroughly investigate who you are giving an animal to. Check vet references and visit their home. (Czerkawski lied and said he had a farm in Connecticut. Asking to visit the farm that he did not have would have immediately kept the puppy out of his hands.)Czerkawski is also accused of stealing checks from a church and misleading police.

Police are confident Czerkawski is their man — they say they found Puppy Doe’s blood on his apartment floor. Disgusting! This “man” deserves everything he gets and more.It’s about time that animal killers and abusers get hard time for their crimes. If Czerkawski gets the max, he won’t be out until he’s almost 90 — if he makes it out at all.Through it all, vets say that Puppy Doe, despite what she’d been through, was loving and friendly to all. Can you imagine? Animals are certainly better than humans in a lot of ways, and anyone who takes advantage of that doesn’t deserve freedom.

Internet users have united to get justice for a dog so brutally tortured that she had to be euthanized.

Puppy Doe, a pit bull that faced horrifically brutal torture, had to be euthanized because of her injuries. Police are now searching for her abuser. | Animal Rescue League of Boston

On Aug. 31, a female pit bull was found on Carrolls Lane in Quincy, Mass., near a playground, according to Boston’s Animal Rescue League, or ARL. The dog, who was likely 1 to 2 years old, weighed half what she should have. She had suffered starvation and abuse “sadistic” in nature, including stabbings to the eye and a sliced tongue. Her injuries were so severe that she had to be euthanized.

Veterinarians working on the animal, named Puppy Doe, were sickened by her state.

“They’re a freak, a total freak,” Dr. Martha Smith-Blackmore, who performed the autopsy on the tortured pup, told Boston’s WBZ of the alleged abuser. “Splitting her tongue, burning her nose, stabbing her eye, it’s the totality of the types of injuries. Not only was she beaten, she was stabbed [and] she was burned. It’s all kinds of injures. It’s a sick mind that can do this to an animal.”

The Quincy Police Department and animal rescue groups are asking for help. The ARL is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the prosecution of the perpetrator. Animal groups Misty’s Journey and Second Chance Rescue NYC have already raised more than $11,000 on YouCaring.com toward a reward for information provided.

A Facebook group titled “Justice for Puppy Doe” already has more than 25,000 likes and has attracted support from as far away as Brazil.

“We need anyone who knows who owned and abused this dog to contact authorities,” District Attorney Morrissey said, via the ARL. “The injuries cataloged in the post-mortem examination are grotesque and indicate consistent starvation and abuse over an extended period of time. It is highly unlikely that this level of sadistic cruelty could be shown to one animal and not be part of a pattern involving other animals or perhaps vulnerable people. We need to find the person who did this and see what else they are doing.”

Meanwhile, the dog’s alleged original owner, Laura Hankins, has come forward. Hankins told the Boston Herald she and her boyfriend bought the pit bull mix last December for $200 on Craigslist. But her landlord eventually told her the dog had to go. Soshe put the dog back on Craigslist.

She gave the animal to a woman from Grafton who “seemed wonderful,” according to the Herald. The new owner sent updates, but those stopped in July.

The Puppy Doe case has reignited the fight against free pets on Craigslist, a practice that has been linked to abuse and death.Change.org petition set up in memoriam of Puppy Doe demands Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster end the practice.

Via Change.org:

It’s beyond words that this sweet, innocent dog, that once knew love had to suffer this violent, evil fate, but at the very least, if … “giving away” of pets was banned on Craligslist there would be a small amount of justice in her name.

The petition has nearly 20,000 signatures.

As of Saturday, police were following up on six specific tips, according to the Herald. The Patriot Ledger reports that a memorial has been set up for Puppy Doe along a fence at the playground near where she was found.

Anyone with information, is asked to contact the Animal Rescue League at 617-226-5610 or Quincy Police Det. Thomas Pepdjonovich at 617-745-5774.

Feds Bring First Case Under New ‘Animal Crush’ Video Law

Comments Off on Feds Bring First Case Under New ‘Animal Crush’ Video Law

A Houston man and woman were indicted Wednesday for producing “animal crush” videos, the first federal case brought under the Animal Crush Video Prohibition Act of 2010, which was passed after the Supreme Court ruled that a previous version of the law violated the First Amendment.

The U.S. attorney in southern Texas charged Ashley Nicole Richards, 22, and Brent Justice, 51, who are already facing state animal cruelty charges, with producing eight videos that allegedly involve the torture and killing of puppies, chickens and kittens, according a release from the federal prosecutor’s office. Richards and Justice face five counts of animal crush charges and two obscenity charges.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office of Southern Texas confirmed the Houston case is the first in the nation brought under the revised law.

In April 2010, the Supreme Court decided 8-1 in U.S. v. Stevens to strike down Section 48 of Title 18 of U.S. Code as unconstitutional.

The code, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the opinion of the court, penalized “anyone who knowingly ‘creates, sells, or possesses a depiction of animal cruelty,’ if done ‘for commercial gain’ in interstate or foreign commerce.”

That case involved a man who sold videos of dogfighting and of dogs attacking other animals. He challenged his indictment on the grounds that Section 48 violated the First Amendment.

Though the government argued the code was necessary for cases of “animal crush” and animal fighting videos, the court held “a law may be invalidated as overboard if ‘a substantial number of its applications are unconstitutional.’” The court, therefore, did not discuss whether animal crush videos were a special case that could warrant an exception to the First Amendment.

“We … need not and do not decide whether a statute limited to crush videos or other depictions of extreme animal cruelty would be constitutional,” Roberts wrote for the court.

The court invalidated the law altogether as overboard, prompting Congress in September of that year to pass the Animal Crush Video Prohibition Act of 2010, which specifically prohibited animal crush videos and defined them as “any photograph, motion picture, film, video or digital recording, or electronic image that:

(1) depicts actual conduct in which one or more living non-human mammals, birds, reptiles, or amphibians is intentionally crushed, burned, drowned, suffocated, impaled, or otherwise subjected to serious bodily injury;

(2) is obscene.

The “and obscene” provision would be key if the statute were challenged anew, said First Amendment expert and University of Chicago law professor Geoffrey Stone.

“[Congress] passed this very complicated law that does not add anything to the scope of what is criminal,” Stone told POLITICO. “So as long as we stipulate that the material has to be obscene to be prosecuted under the statute, then why don’t you just prosecute you under the obscenity statute?”

The reference to obscenity also appears to limit the statute’s application in several ways, including limiting it to videos that are sexual in nature.

Stone believes that if the case were to be brought to the highest court, the question at issue would be whether there is a legitimate reason to distinguish this type of obscenity from others.

With free speech restrictions, the government cannot constitutionally pick and choose what type of speech to restrict based solely on its content, as established in the hate speech case R.A.V. v. City of St. Paul.

Stone compares the animal crush statute to a law creating higher penalties for purveyors of homosexual obscenity as opposed to non-homosexual obscenity – the government in both cases would need to show why the distinction serves a societal necessity.

Stone said in defence of the law, as in the comparable issue of child pornography, sometimes the government punishes selling depictions of something cruel to take away the incentive for individuals to commit the cruelty in order to profit off of it.

The animal crush statute carries a maximum penalty of seven years in prison; the obscenity statute carries up to five.

Humane Society: Dog dies after ‘horrific’ injuries, torture

Comments Off on Humane Society: Dog dies after ‘horrific’ injuries, torture

The Danville Area Humane Society is looking for suspects responsible for the torture and death of a male Jack Russell terrier brought into the facility Tuesday night.

Around 10 p.m. Tuesday, the Danville Police Department contacted employees at the shelter regarding “a severely injured dog” in the 100 block of Oakland Avenue and Halifax Road, according to a news release from the Humane Society. The owner of the dog contacted police for help.

The dog was suffering from “serious knife wounds” and dog bites, according to the release. The dog’s owner transported him to the shelter where he died shortly thereafter. Shelter manager April Hogan and board president and court-appointed humane investigator Lynn Shelton said the dog was suffering from some of the most “horrific injuries” they have seen, according to the release.

The pictures are too graphic to release,” said Paulette Dean, director of the Humane Society. “If a person intentionally inflicted these wounds, this is proof that pure evil exists.”

The details are still coming together, but it is believed the injuries were inflicted between 5 and 6 p.m. Tuesday. Dean said the owner said the dog was missing for about half an hour. Dean said the police are following up on every lead, but there are a lot of questions in this case.

“We are pretty seasoned and we are used to seeing horrible things,” Dean said. “This will go down in our memory being among the top three worst cases.”

Since the torture and death of the terrier was intentional and resulted in the death of the dog, Dean said the case could be prosecuted as a class six felony. If it is prosecuted as a felony, the suspects responsible could face no more than five years in prison and no less than one year, as well as a fine of no more than $2,500.

The Humane Society is offering a $3,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of the people responsible. Anyone with information regarding the attack is urged to contact the Humane Society at (434) 799-0843.

Discovery of tortured family dog in New Jersey prompts warning to owners

Comments Off on Discovery of tortured family dog in New Jersey prompts warning to owners

“September 19th 2012 – I don’t believe in counter violence to settle old scores etc. But boy oh boy, what I wouldn’t give to spend 5 minutes alone with those that did this along; with half my followers! I just can’t imagine those that did it, blending in with a normal family life…they are EVIL; therefore should stick out like a bloody sore thumb! What is the world coming to when your own dog isn’t safe within your yard? These MF‘s must drive around looking for possible dogs, the gentle ones that will come a running with tail wagging…breaks my bloody heart to think of it! R.I.P Ridge, finally no more pain, just lots of lovely juicy bones &  fields to run around; with all the other special ones that crossed Rainbow’s Bridge x”

“Please if you have any information which might help this case, no matter how small or insignificant. please contact the police; no other dog should have to die this way!” 

A dog located within the confines of his own family‘s fenced yard should be safe. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.

Days ago in New Brunswick, N.J., the body of a tortured dog was found in a trash bag in an up-scale neighbourhood.

The dog’s name was Ridge and he had a family.

A microchip embedded in the young dog’s body allowed the authorities to determine who that family was, and piece together what had happened prior to Ridge’s untimely death.

Until the day that he was stolen, Ridge was a beloved friend and playmate to his family’s two young children, ages 4 and 5.

But unscrupulous people stole Ridge from his gated, fenced yard and abused him until the day that he was dead and thrown away.

According to the NJ SPCA, Ridge was:

stolen as he played in a locked and gated back yard, used as bait, starved, neglected, abused, burned and tossed out of a moving car window

Along with the heart-wrenching description of the torture that Ridge was subjected to, is a dire warning to pet owners, “Protect Your Pets! Pet Theft is again on the rise.”

Dog fighters, searching for so-calledbait dogs,” do not follow rules. They do not respect boundaries, and last, but certainly not least, they do not care.

Protect your pets, help spare them from being tortured and killed like Ridge.

According to the NJSPCA, an investigation is underway into this innocent dog’s horrific death.

Bullfighting: Hallowed Tradition or Animal Torture? France Rules – YOUR COMMENTS PLEASE

Comments Off on Bullfighting: Hallowed Tradition or Animal Torture? France Rules – YOUR COMMENTS PLEASE

LONDON — In a setback for animal rights campaigners, France’s top judges ruled on Friday that bullfighting does not contravene the Constitution.

José Tomás, a Spanish bullfighter, at France’s Nimes arena last Sunday.

The decision came in the same month as live coverage of bullfighting returned to television in Spain, the home of the corrida, after a six-year ban.

So is bullfighting making a comeback after decades of campaigns to abolish it, or are the latest developments a blip in the long-term decline of an activity that opponents say is animal torture?

Campaigners, including the veteran French actors Brigitte Bardot and Alain Delon, had called on the Constitutional Council in France to rule that laws banning mistreatment of animals should be applied across the country, ending the exceptions granted to regions of southern France where bullfighting is an old tradition.

The judges ruled, however, that such “uninterrupted local traditions” did not contravene the Constitution. The same went for in the French West Indies.

Despite the ruling, the animal rights lobby is confident bullfighting is on the way out. The last corrida in the Spanish region of Catalonia was held last year after the regional Parliament voted to ban bullfighting.

As my colleague Raphael Minder wrote at the time: “The number of bullfights held in Spain has fallen by just over a third since the onset of the financial crisis — to 1,724 last year from 2,622 in 2007.”

However, economic considerations can work both ways. Before the French ruling, business leaders in southern France interviewed by the Agence France Press agency said bullfighting was a significant contributor to the economies of cities like Nîmes and Arles, helping employment and tourism.

The general public, meanwhile, appears evenly divided on the issue.

On the eve of the ruling, a poll carried out on behalf of Crac, a European anti-bullfighting lobby group, indicated that 57 percent of the French wanted a ban, and another survey put the figure at 48 percent.

The Crac poll also suggested a political split on the issue, with 58 percent of left-leaning respondents favoring a ban, compared with 41 percent of right-leaning respondents.

However, Harlem Désir, newly nominated to lead the Socialist Party, was among politicians who opposed a blanket ban. “There are traditions and every region should be allowed to decide for itself,” he said.

Manuel Valls, the French interior minister, who was born in Spain, fueled the indignation of abolitionists by affirming that bullfighting was “a culture worth preserving.”

Politics has certainly played a part in developments in Spain. The broadcasting ban on live fights was lifted after the center-right government of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy came to power last December following a campaign in which he pledged to support bullfighting and even try to get it reinstated in Catalonia.

“I’m in favor of freedom,” he said. “No one is forced to go to a bullfight and it should not be banned either.”

French abolitionists are now expected to consider taking the issue to the European Court of Human Rights and to press for legislation in Parliament to outlaw bullfighting.

Franz-Olivier Giesbert, writing in France’s Le Point, accused the abolitionists of hypocrisy for focusing on bullfighting while ignoring animal cruelty in slaughterhouses.

Mr. Giesbert, who said he was not a bullfighting fan, wrote that those who brought the issue to the Council “totally represent the spirit of an age which accepts animal suffering as long as it’s not visible.” For diehard aficionados it is a question of freedom and tradition.

Víctor Manuel Mendes-Marinhais, a Portuguese bullfighter who made his name in Spain, said it was time to fight back against the abolitionists at a time when the corrida was facing unprecedented challenges.

Bullfighting was a cultural expression and “culture can’t be banned,” he said this month.

“We’ve passively allowed the anti-bullfight lobby to organize with the support of international animal rights organizations,” he said. “With our taxes, we aficionados are financing those who want to ban us.”

Are you with Víctor Mendes in believing that bullfighting is a centuries-old cultural tradition that should be preserved? Or do you think it’s a barbaric leftover from the Middle Ages that should be outlawed?

ASPCA Endorses New Legislation to Prohibit Cruel Practice of Horse Soring

Comments Off on ASPCA Endorses New Legislation to Prohibit Cruel Practice of Horse Soring

NEW YORK, SEPT. 13, 2012 — H.R. 6388 strengthens Horse Protection Act to better protect horses

The ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) today applauds Reps. Ed Whitfield (R-KY) and Steve Cohen (D-TN) for introducing legislation to amend the federal Horse Protection Act of 1970 to eradicate the abusive practice of horse soring. H.R. 6388 will enhance the U.S. Department of Agriculture‘s (USDA) ability to enforce the Horse Protection Act by eliminating self-policing inspection practices, increasing penalties, and designating additional soring practices illegal.

Currently illegal under the Horse Protection Act, soring involves using painful chemicals and devices to inflict pain in horses to compel an exaggerated show-ring gait so desirable in the multimillion-dollar Tennessee Walking Horse industry.

Soring is a particularly cruel form of abuse as the horses are forced to endure years of chronic pain throughout their show career,” said Nancy Perry, senior vice president of ASPCA Government Relations. “The Horse Protection Act was specifically enacted in 1970 to prohibit this abhorrent practice, and yet it continues to pervade the gaited horse industry four decades later. We thank Representatives Whitfield, Cohen, Schakowsky, and Moran for introducing legislation to protect these gentle animals and bring an end to horse soring.”

“Far too often, those involved in showing the Tennessee Walking Horse have turned a blind eye to abusive trainers, or when they do take action, the penalties are so minor, it does nothing to prevent these barbaric acts,” said. Rep. Whitfield.  “This amendment does not cost the federal government any additional money and is essential in helping to put an end to the practice of soring Tennessee Walking Horses by abusive trainers.

“In Tennessee, soring horses is illegal and unacceptable,” said Rep. Cohen. “Those responsible for abusing these horses should be punished severely and banned from the sport.  How we treat animals is a direct reflection of our character, both as individuals and a nation.   There is no ribbon, no prize nor championship worth the price of one’s humanity.”

The training method known as “soring” involves the deliberate application of pain-causing chemicals, cuts or foreign objects to a horse’s limbs or hoof pads to cause such agony to the animal’s front limbs that any contact with the ground forces the horse to fling its leg back up into the air.  Additionally, trainers may attempt to mask soring by “stewarding” Tennessee Walking Horses, which conditions the horses to remain still by beating, torturing or burning them.

In 2010, the USDA Office of Inspector General (OIG) conducted an audit of the horse protection program, finding that trainers in the industry often go to great lengths to evade detection rather than comply with federal law and train their horses using humane methods. The OIG made several recommendations, including stiffer penalties and abolishing the self-policing practices currently allowed, where the Horse Industry Organizations are able to assign their own inspectors to horse shows. 

H.R. 6388 will eliminate the current self-policing practices by requiring the USDA to assign a licensed inspector to a horse show. Second, it will prohibit the use of action devices on the various horse breeds that have frequently been the victims of soring.  Action devices, such as chains that rub up and down an already sore leg, intensify the horse’s pain when it moves, so that the horse quickly jolts up its leg.  Lastly, the amendment increases the penalties on an individual caught soring a horse.

“It doesn’t matter how many times I watch this video, it always makes me cry! To purposely inflict pain on an animal,  just to win a prize is sickening; its legal abuse, just like rodeos! Why hasn’t it been stopped before now, they know it’s still happening, the majority of punters know it happens…but it all boils down to money, & when animals are involved, it is they, who always pay the highest price! Corrupt judges, vets, trainers, handlers…from the top down, their all in on it…they are nothing but sad, evil greedy bxxxxxd’s!! (excuse my French).

“My horse went lame over the weekend…my daughter brought back video of her…I haven’t stopped crying since viewing it! Watching her try to walk on 3 legs, bless, she must have been in agony…it was bloody heartbreaking to see; I felt so useless not being able to get to her due to my usual pain! Anyhow, vet thinks she pulled her stifle muscle, so she is on box rest with medication for pain & swelling, which is gradually getting better daily…got vets bill yesterday… £328…I knew it would be high because it was an emergency call out, but it’s not about the money, as long as she will soon feel better & be back to her old cantankerous way’s…I don’t care how much it will cost! 

“That’s what you do when you love your animals, I would sell the clothes off my back if need be, to pay for further treatment for her! Yet some turds in this industry purposely torture their horses, so they step higher, out of pain… just for a bloody rosette or tin cup!! They shouldn’t be anywhere near horses, or other animals for that matter…because they clearly don’t give 2 tits about them or their welfare, their only in it for the money they will make, out of the animals they abuse! So don’t ever believe them when they say ‘Oh, I just love my horse, he’s the best’… because their bloody lying!”

Man Arrested In Abuse That Cost Puppy A Leg

Comments Off on Man Arrested In Abuse That Cost Puppy A Leg

“WTF…Sick POS wants locking up & the key melted down…he is the epitome of evil in human form!”

Pinellas Parkpolice today arrested a 44-year-old St. Petersburg man and charged him with felony cruelty to animals in a case that cost a 5-month-old puppy his front left leg.

Beau suffered a broken leg in May,.Because it became infected it had to be amputated.

An arrest affidavit says that from May through June, Todd Walker inflicted multiple injuries on a dog named Beau.

The arrest report states Walker was observed drop-kicking the dog approximately 5 to 6 feet across the living room to where the dog hit the arm of a lounge chair.

On a second occasion, Walker was observed throwing the dog on to a couch and hitting the dog in the face, then punching the dog in the area of its hind legs with his fist, the report said.

Pinellas Park police Det. Mike Lynch also wrote that on at least two occasions Walker was seen throwing water bottles at the dog.

Beau suffered two broken bones to the left lower leg, along with a broken upper bone to the same leg, and a skull fracture.

Lynch added, “As a result of the injuries the dog’s left leg had to be amputated and the dog was observed to be in a state of fear when the defendant was present with the dog.”

Last week, SPCA Tampa Bay offered a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for abusing Beau.

Beau suffered a broken leg in May, and it became infected

The agency began its investigation in June when Kat Burke of Pinellas Park, the owner’s aunt, called the SPCA abuse hotline.

“It certainly looks like abuse from our perspective; it’s almost impossible for an animal to get that many injuries any other way,” SPCA Tampa Bay CEO Martha Boden said.

Burke claimed the dog suffered a broken left front leg in May. A month later on June 19, she says she got a panicked call from her niece, Rebecca Walker, telling her that “Beau’s leg was broke again, it was the same leg and she was on her way home.”

Burke rushed the dog to Haynes Road Animal Hospital, where they started treatment immediately.

In addition to the broken leg, Burke said Beau also suffered two skull fractures, a broken jaw bone and broken ribs.

“He was in shock,” Burke said.

According to Burke, Beau’s broken leg was badly infected and he suffered nerve damage.  Doctors decided to amputate.

Todd Walker

A week later, Rebecca Walker wrote in a request for an injunction for protection against domestic violence that her husband “Todd was watching my dog, Beau. Todd called me and said my dog was hurt.”

Todd Walker is a convicted felon. He has done time in the Florida state prisonsystem for felony battery and incest with a relative.

Now he faces another felony charge, cruelty to animals.

As for Beau, Burke said he continues to heal from his injuries. She has taken the dog in and hopes one day to work with and help inspire young children who have also lost limbs.

Jordan Lucas used a cell phone to film himself in the acts of “throwing the kitten against furniture, punching, slapping, strangling, asphyxiation and spinning the black and white kitten around with a cord around its neck,” reported Global BC.

The phone that Lucas used to record the attack on the kitten was then subsequently sold second hand to a new owner who found the shocking video and turned it over to authorities.

“On April 26 we were contacted by a woman who had purchased a used cell phone,” said Marcie Moriarty, general manager of cruelty investigations for the BC SPCA. “To her horror, the cell phone still contained a video lasting more than 50 minutes of a helpless kitten being violently abused and tortured.”

Although the video did not show Lucas’ face, authorities were able to identify him through phone records and from a tattoo on his left hand.

During the initial investigation last month, it was also found that Lucas had outstanding warrants for his arrest, and if convicted on animal cruelty charges under Section 445. 1 (1) of the Criminal Code of Canada he could face a fine of up to $10,000, up to five years in jail and up to a lifetime ban on owning an animal.

Given the severity of the video, and the injuries inflicted, it was the opinion of the SPCA that kitten likely did not survive.

Sickening Animal Abuse Act – Caught On Video

Comments Off on Sickening Animal Abuse Act – Caught On Video

“WTF…Why? Just sickened by this heinous attack on a sentient being…I hope somebody gives them a little pre-Jail treatment… judging by Face Book…there are plenty volunteers!

A Somalian student, entrusted by his friend to care for his puppy during his absence, threw the mutt into a manhole with the help of another perpetrator

PETALING JAYA: Several pictures showing a puppy being thrown into a manhole in Cyberjaya by two foreign nationals is going viral on Facebook.

The pictures are posted on Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) Facebook page. FMT has also viewed a video showing the two foreigners caught in action doing the heinous act in June.

Malaysian Animal Welfare Society (MAWS) president Shenaaz Khan said that the six-month-old puppy named Kanilla belonged to a Jordanian student Mostafa Silawy, who is studying at the Lim Kok Wing University.

“Having left Malaysia in June for a month-long holiday, Mostafa entrusted his Somalian friend Mohamad Hasan to care for Kanilla in his absence.

“On Mostafa’s return, Mohamad told the former that Kanilla had gone missing,” said Shenaaz.

However, Shenaaz said that another friend of Mostafa had downloaded a video showing Mohamad and another Somalian, Ahmad Subair Addirahman Mohamoud, throwing the docile mutt into a manhole.

The duo are said to be students at the Malaysian Multimedia University (MMU).

Shenaaz said that Mostafa had lodged a police report on the matter at the Cyberjaya police station three days ago.

She urged the authorities to take action against the Somalians and claimed the duo had threatened Mostafa for making the report.

“The duo threatened Mostafa for putting the picture clippings of their heinous act on Facebook,” she alleged.

‘Take immediate action’

FMT checked the video which runs for 1 minute 50 seconds, showing Subair holding the puppy while Mohamad hurled profanities before throwing the dog.

An unknown cameraman told the duo, “Okay, hurry up. Just do it and then we run like nothing happened.”

Later, Mohamad faced the camera and said, “F… this dog. This b…. is dead.

The duo then threw Kanilla into the manhole and ran away while laughing.

The duo’s act drew ire from Facebook’s users, with many calling for the police to take immediate action against the Somalians.

One user named David Dawei said, “Cancel their student visa and skin them alive before deporting them back to their third world homeland.

Another user Yew Peng said, “No don’t send them back yet. Let me beat them first.

“According the Face Book page…the dog drowned to death!”
