Dog tied and burnt alive


A dog had to be euthanised on Monday after being set alight and left to burn in Daleside, Vereeniging, the SPCA said. "The dog stood like a sculpture because it was too painful for her to move. No animal deserves this type of barbaric and cruel torturing," said Marlien Pieterse, manager of the Vereeniging SPCA. The female Shar-Pei Cross was still alive when she was found on Monday tied up with electrical wiring. Her entire body was burnt. "Her wounds were too severe, so the kindest thing we could do was to humanely euthanise her." The SPCA and local police were looking for those responsible. Criminal charges would be laid in terms of the Animals Protection Act.Sapa

    I say let the punishment befit the crime....too many lawyers defending criminals these days - and, of course, these are ONLY animals hey, so the savages will never be punished. There is only one way....
