NEW DELHI (March 18th, 2016)— A video showing extreme violence against one puppy and several dogs has been caught on CCTV camera near Green Park Metro. Humane Society International/India and Fauna Police are offering a joint reward of 1,00,000 INR for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person shown in the video stabbing and hacking the animals.
The Case: On 15th March 2016, the CCTV camera of a store located opposite the Green Park Metro captured a gruesome act of cruelty. A man was luring puppies and dogs with bits of food only to grab them to stab and hack them. The video showed the young unidentified male luring a puppy and then stabbing it multiple times before ripping it into two parts. Dogs that approached the man were also stabbed and grievously injured. A similar incident is reported to have occurred in Gautham Nagar where dogs were seen with stab wounds. Fauna Police volunteers suspect that it is the same person.
N. G Jayasimha, managing director of HSI/India said, “A man who is so barbaric as to mutilate puppies in an open street is nothing but a threat to the society. This incident exposes the violent nature of this man and it’s essential for the safety of the animals and the society that this man is put behind bars. Bringing this perpetrator to book will set precedence for future wrong doers. We are hopeful that this reward will urge anyone with information about this man to step forward and talk to us. We are working with the Fauna Police and the appropriate police officials to see that this person is apprehended at the earliest."
Animal Cruelty: Getting the serious attention of law enforcement, prosecutors and the community in cases involving allegations of cruelty to animals is an essential step in protecting the community. The connection between animal cruelty and human violence is well documented. Studies show a correlation between animal cruelty and all manner of other crimes, from narcotics and firearms violations to battery and sexual assault. An FIR has already been registered in this regard asking for a thorough investigation to ensure the perpetrator of this heinous crime is caught and punished.
