BUTTERWORTH: The owner of a puppy that was attacked by three Vietnamese planning to cook it for their lunch decided to withdraw the police report over the incident when the men agreed to pay the medical cost for the animal. 

The owner identified as Ah Keat, who was met at a factory at Taman Nagasari near here yesterday, said he had bought the puppy from Canada for RM6,000 about five months ago. 

He said the puppy was still undergoing treatment at a veterinary clinic in Bukit Mertajam. 

Ah Keat said the puppy suffered injuries on both front legs. 

However, Central Seberang Prai CID chief DSP Chor Ah Sing said police had not received any letter from Ah Keat to withdraw his report. 

He said police had obtained a two-week remand order from a magistrate's court here to detain the men to facilitate investigations.  

Last Tuesday, the three men who had planned to cook the puppy clubbed it with an iron rod.  

Ah Keat's wife, who spotted the men chasing her puppy, thought nothing had happened until she heard the puppy yelp in pain.  

When she saw one of the men repeatedly hitting the puppy’s legs with a rod, she quickly called the police who arrived shortly and arrested the suspects.
