Every day I am horrified by the sheer number of animal abuse cases and stories of our furry friends being dumped.
Shazreen Othuman, from Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, posted an image that has been shared around the world by shocked animal lovers.
A dog covered entirely in green paint was spotted wandering the streets, crying and looking for food.
He posted the pictures to try and find the person responsible for this cruel and dangerous act and said the dog was “in tears” and “looking for food in a plastic bag.
“It is totally inhuman,” he added.
“Anyone who has made this gesture must be mentally ill. It is totally inhuman to think of doing such things,” his post read.
His image was shared and an appeal for anyone with any information on the culprit was also put out.
His post continues, “Meanwhile, the Malaysian Association of Veterinary Pathology (MAVP) says that ‘the paint is very dangerous for animals, it can also be lethal because it interrupts the respiratory system, causes nausea, dizziness and skin allergies.'”
On November 16, Shazreen posted an update thanking the person who came to the dog’s rescue and gave him a shower.
“Thank you everyone for your love and support to this poor little fellow,” wrote Shazreen.
Thanks to Shazreen for highlighting this awful case of animal abuse and getting something done to help.
If you see an animal in distress, please do not hesitate to report it, it could save a life.
