There are certain stories that make us wonder what could possibly be going through people’s heads. Why on Earth would someone torture an innocent animal and force them to suffer like this? This dog was found in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. By the time he was located, he had been painted green and left to fend for himself. Shazreen Othuman was the first to find him.
She took to social media immediately, so that she could find help for the poor little guy. The paint fumes had made the dog sick and he was looking lifeless. He did not have any food to eat. He was dizzy and needed a great deal of help. Local animal rights activists were outraged when they learned of the dog’s plight. They could not understand why someone would do such a thing.
We can’t either, to be perfectly honest. Once a volunteer was able to rescue the pup, he was given the bath that he sorely needed. The dog’s paint exposure could have been fatal but the rescuers were able to get to him in the nick of time. We shudder to think of what might have happened to this dog if they didn’t. Other homeless dogs in this region could find themselves at risk, though.
That’s why it is important to take the time to spread the necessary awareness. While this is not a problem that most of us would expect to have to deal with, there is a wide range of animals who are tortured by miscreants like these. They do not deserve the treatment that they receive, by any stretch of the imagination. The authorities are now in the process of locating these creeps.
