The list of ways humans are cruel to earth’s innocent animals has become seemingly endless. This more recent disturbing display of cruelty comes out of the northern town of Agra in India – and it is not just heartbreaking, it’s incomprehensible. Apparently, construction workers thought it was better to pour molten hot tar over a sleeping dog rather than take a quick moment to shoo it away. They then proceeded to run it over! A Care2 Petition is seeking justice for this poor dog, who died in one of the worst ways possible, by addressing the Agra police.
This type of gross disregard for innocent life is completely horrifying and the party responsible needs to punished. While workers for RP Infrastructure Limited, claim they didn’t notice the dog because they were working at night, witnesses report that the men clearly heard the poor dog’s cries but did nothing. Additionally, this is a clear indication that they are not fit for the job, as roads should be cleared before paving over whatever happens to be in the way – what if it had been a human! There really is no excuse for such malicious and careless behavior, please sign the petition to voice your outrage. No innocent animal deserves to suffer and die like this and then to have the incident brushed under the rug is a disgrace.
The dog’s lifeless body was recovered and given a proper burial but that’s not enough! All life is precious yet sadly, these workers have forgotten that– they should be reminded. Too many people have gotten away with animal cruelty, share this petition with your network in honor of this dog’s life, don’t let his death be in vain like so many others.
