You Won't Believe What This Sick Teen Did to His Puppy...
Teenager Jacky Lo has sparked outrage in Hong Kong after posting distressing images of a puppy nearly drowning in a washing machine on social media.
The disturbed teenager shared shocking pictures of a puppy scrambling to get out of the machine during a wash cycle on his Facebook page. Along with a smiley face icon, he bragged in an accompanying comment: 'A super quick way to wash a dog: soak, clean, and dry. All done. Clean and quick!'
When one poster asked if the puppy - thought to be a West Highland Terrier - had died, Lo shamelessly responded ‘Yes, wanna see it?’, although images taken since have shown the dog to be alive, albeit sodden and visibly in shock.
Although the teen’s facebook page has since been taken down, screenshots revealed that another poster then asked Lo whether he saw the act an a form of animal cruelty, to which he said: 'I don't even think animal cruelty is a problem, not to mention cats and dogs!'
Many users of the social media site expressed their horror at the images, branding the teenager as ‘scum', 'a weak bully' and ‘a monster’ in comments. In response this Lo added, 'I don't care what you guys are going to do! Do I look afraid of you guys?'
The incident sparked an online petition on the website ‘You Sign Animals’ that gathered 19,000 signatures calling for the authorities to investigate the matter.
Rebecca Ngam, a spokeswoman for the SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) said, 'We received about 50 emails overnight from people who were very concerned. Obviously, even if the dog is not dead, to put a dog in a washing machine would still be cruelty.'
Despite the police stepping in and launching an investigation into the matter, Lo still remains shamelessly boastful of his actions and shows no remorse. He logged onto the online petition page to mock concerned users, saying: 'Wanted?? This afternoon I'm going back to China. See ya later.'
Let’s hope this monstrous teen’s actions catch up with him and that he is punished accordingly!
