Hyderabad: Residents of the gated community Sahara Estates in LB Nagar had ruthlessly beaten 50 dogs. Some dogs were profusely bleeding, even then the cruelty towards the dogs did not stop.
According to the news reported in Deccan Chronicle, some 30 persons were involved in beating the dogs and prodding them with sticks.
Pravallika, honorary animal welfare officer, said that “I had adopted all the 50 dogs in the community, vaccinated them and put them through birth-control procedures not to let their numbers increase. Most of the residents barring a few animal lovers always shoo away the dogs, but today they took it too far. The act could have resulted in mass-killing of dogs.”
She also added that “I informed the police as soon as I received the news from an animal lover from the community. Now even officials are witness to this heinous act. The only reason why dogs choose to live in gated communities is because the garbage thrown out by residents becomes easy food for them.”
Animal cruelty complaint was filed at Vanasthalipuram police station, and the police assured that they will find out whether the persons who had beaten the dogs were hired goons or the residents of the gated community.
