Dog beaten to death with pipe
Miniature Pinscher was beaten to death in Brakpan (South Africa). The terrible case of animal cruelty is being investigated by the police and animal organizations.
The dog yelling was heard by a neighbour who immediately called the police. When the officers arrived together with SPCA employees, they found the dog dead. The puppy had its tongue blue and its head was disfigured from the beating. The dog had also a cable tied around its neck so tightly that the SPCA officers were unable to cut it off with a knife. The Miniature Pinscher was also stabbed with a sharp object through one side of her body and out the other. The side of her heart was pierced in the process.
Although the dog’s owner who admitted to have strangled the dog with the cable and beat the Miniature Pinscher to death with the lead pipe in order to end its suffering as the dog was sick, the autopsy revealed that the dog was in perfect health.
The man was arrested at the scene.
