Woman clears dog's carcass from road, earns praise online

KLANG: A woman in Terengganu is receiving public praise for removing the carcass of a dog from a road.

Pictures of the tudung-wearing woman, shared on social media and an online portal, show her bundling the carcass into a garbage bag and carrying it to her car for disposal.

The incident apparently happened in Chendering, Terengganu and the pictures were shared on social media on Sunday (Jan 22).

“Bless this kind-hearted lady for her compassion in giving the dog a burial.

“Such acts of kindness deserve to be shared as an example for others," said Animal Care founder Dr Chan Kah Yein.

Sherrina Krishnan from the Pet Adoption Network said it was rare to see members of the public clearing up roadkill.

“This lady is an inspiration to all of us and an act done in the state of Terengganu reiterates the compassion of any religion – to be kind to all creatures, big and small," said Sherrina.

She hoped the woman’s act would be made viral so that more people would see her act of compassion.

“The people of Trengganu should be proud of her," Sherrina added.

Homeless Paws of Manjung Strays coordinator Joanne Low also agreed that it was rare to see people removing animal carcasses from roads.

“It is very sad to see animals being run down and some are left in very bad shape.

“To remove them and bury them or place them in a safer area is a form of respect to the poor animals that died," she said.

People generally avoided clearing roadkill because they felt disgusted, or believed it was not their job, she added.

It was usually common to see animal carcasses remaining where they were run over for days until local council workers came to remove them.
