MAA helping to find man seen shooting at stray dogs


PETALING JAYA: Malaysia Animal Association (MAA) is helping to track down a sarong-clad man who was caught on video shooting stray dogs with a shotgun.

MAA is offering RM2,000 to those with information leading to the identity of the man holding the weapon.

“MAA condemns such acts, ” it said on its Facebook page, in response to the clip that went viral.

The clip showed a middle-aged man shooting stray dogs loitering outside his house.

Yelps of pain could be heard, along with the voice of a woman saying he had “only hit the leg”.

The video sparked outrage among animal lovers.

Although the Animal Welfare Act 2015 has come into force, it has not deterred culprits from torturing and killing dogs, said MAA.

“It is high time the issue is taken seriously, ” it said.

The association called upon dog lovers and dog haters to participate in a survey on whether it was reasonable to shoot stray dogs.

“Dog lovers and haters are given a platform to air their views and provide reasons.

“Argument should be devoid of emotion, ” it said.
