Mumbai: Four men allegedly mercilessly tortured a male dog which is usually seen near the Malwani Church area in Malwani, the dog was spotted bleeding extensively and with its genitalia mutilated after it went missing for a day. An animal welfare non-government organisation ‘Animals matter to me’ stated that the dog has been taken to a veterinary doctor where it is getting stabilised.
Dr Ankita Pathak, founder of AMTM said, “The dog is in severe trauma. Whenever someone would come near or try to touch it, it would get scared or scream. Its private parts are mutilated in such a way that it could not happen unless someone forcibly harmed it. It appears that someone tried to fold its hind legs near the pelvis. Presently, we are trying to stabilise the dog. It is under medication for the pain. We are trying to reduce the infection as it was bleeding for an entire day.”
Sudha Fernandes who regularly feed the dogs stated that she spotted the dog on Saturday around 12 pm while it was lying down near the church area.
Four drug addicts tortured a male dog, he was spotted bleeding extensively.
She stated that “My husband, after seeing the dog, informed me about its condition and told me that it needs food. When I first went to the dog and tried to touch his leg, it responded in fear and tried to move away. I kept the food in front of the dog, after which it ate it properly. It is then when I saw that its penis was badly injured and it was bleeding a lot. Even when the dog was trying to change its position while lying down, it was in great pain.”
Ms Fernandes was informed by An autorickshaw driver then at around 2 am on Saturday, the dog was brutally raped by four men, who were under influence of drugs.
She said “He told me that the dog needed to be immediately admitted. The dog’s front legs were tied and its mouth gagged while it was sexually tortured. Its loud screams alerted the driver, but the accused fled from the spot.”
According to the report published in the DC, Fernandes will be filing a police complaint.
