Thane: Stray dog burnt alive; case registered
SHARES

According to reports, in an unfortunate scenario of animal abuse, a stray dog was set on fire and burnt alive in Thane city by some unknown miscreants.

The incident came to light when a complaint regarding the same was lodged at the Rabodi police station by a 20-year-old member of the Citizens for Animal Protection Foundation. Moreover, the authorities from the police station informed that the complainant received a message about the episode, post which they rushed to the spot, only to find the dog partially burnt and in a critical condition.

In a saddening situation, even after the dog was rushed to a veterinarian, the animal succumbed to its injuries.

On the other hand, earlier on April 4, a shameful case of sexual abuse of an animal came to light, where a 65-year-old man allegedly raped a female dog multiple times within the limits of Chatushrungi police in Pune district of Maharashtra. He was arrested on Sunday, April 4, after the heinous act was caught on a CCTV camera. The incident took place near Senapati Bapat Road in Model Colony. RESQ Charitable Trust team and its volunteers handed over the man to the Pune city police.

In a similar incident reported earlier, a 68-year-old vendor identified as Ahmed Shahi had abused several local dogs in Andheri, Mumbai. The case had been under investigation at the DN Nagar Police Station where officers found nearly 30 dogs who were victims of sexual abuse.

It happens to be extremely saddening to have such instances of animal abuse come to light in the year 2021, especially when there are numerous problems we are already grappling with. According to experts, animal abuse in violent homes can take many forms and can occur for many reasons. Several times a parent or domestic partner who is abusive may kill, or threaten to kill the household pets to intimidate family members into sexual abuse, to remain silent about previous or current abuse, or simply to torture the animals, in a self-absorbed display of power. Therefore, it becomes very crucial to identify such behaviour and report it to the authorities about the same.
