Seremban cops questioning man who allegedly abused dog

KLANG: Seremban police are questioning a man who allegedly splashed caustic chemicals on a stray dog.

According to a police source, the man was picked up from his place of work earlier on Wednesday (Sept 14) and is being held for questioning after a report was lodged over the alleged abuse.

"We will hold him here for questioning as well as to get him to help us investigate the matter,'' said the police source.

Activist Liza Sharif claimed that the incident happened at a workshop near Labu on Sept 2.

"A workshop owner called me and asked me for help on Sept 5," she said, adding that she went over and saw that the dog was badly injured and still bleeding.

She said the dog was immediately taken at a veterinary clinic in Seremban who said that 80% of the dog's skin was affected.

Liza said she obtained a copy of the CCTV footage from the workshop the police called in for questioning.

"Such cruelty towards street animals should not be tolerated,'' said Liza.

Narin Singh, who is also an independent rescuer, lodged the police report on Sept 12.

He said he felt compelled to lodge the report because blatant cases of animal abuse should be duly dealt with by authorities.

"When the voiceless are abused, the onus is on us to stand-up for them. Punishing them will also be a deterrent for other potential animal abusers,'' he added.
