There is anger circulating over a stray dog who was painted to look like a tiger. The pictures were captured and shared online. The poor dog was a stray, wandering around the city without a collar and his fur was bright orange with black striping.
Following the release of the images on social media, one Malaysian animal rights group began appealing to the public for information about who might be responsible for the dog’s cruel paint job. The Persatuan Haiwan Malaysia – Malaysia Animal Association uploaded the pictures to their Facebook, appealing for tips from the public.
Even though there have been no leads to develop in the case, the animal rights organization is still asking around, hoping that someone from the public knows something and will come forward with information. They’d like to see the people responsible be held accountable for their actions.
As the organization shared on their Facebook post, they really want to figure out who did this, and who this dog might have belonged to. They even offered a reward or a “mystery gift” as they phrased it, for whoever could help them solve the puzzle. The post said, “Mystery gift awaits the complete information if it’s in this country.

The animal rights group is definitely being very proactive about their search for the culprit, however, it’s not exactly clear whether or not the local police force is looking into the matter or not. Either way, there was a lot of anger from people on the internet who were very sad that someone did that to an innocent dog.
One person wrote, “The dog’s face is sad, such a shame.”
Someone else said, “The dog has to take a bath and have its coat shaved to get rid of all the chemicals. Sorry dog, remember the thug who did this to you.”
The way that some people can so callously paint a dog without any regards to its wellbeing is beyond me. It’s not a funny prank, it’s just downright cruel. Hopefully the people responsible are caught and brought to some kind of justice.
Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to contact the animal rights group on Whatsapp – Hotline Animal Malaysia + 601120901097.
