Children believe monsters are real, and are often mocked to ‘grow up’. But look around us, at what’s happening in the world, and you’ll realise… monsters are indeed real. We, humans, are the monsters. And our unspeakable crimes are not restricted to just our kind. We brutalise mute and defenseless animals too.
In a shocking incident, four men in an inebriated stated gangraped a male stray dog in an area near Mumbai’s Malwani Church.
The dog was a regular sight in the area, but went missing for a day. A local resident who used to feed the dogs often, Sudha Fernandes, and her husband found the dog on Saturday afternoon, bleeding profusely.
Deccan Chronicle quoted her saying,
An autorickshaw driver eventually informed Fernandes that around 2 am on Saturday, four men possibly in a drug induced state, brutalised the dog.
“He told me that the dog needed to be immediately admitted. The dog’s front legs were tied and its mouth gagged while it was sexually tortured. Its loud screams alerted the driver, but the accused fled from the spot.”
The lady has now decided to file a police complaint.
Currently, an animal welfare NGO called ‘Animals Matter To Me’ has taken the dog to a vet and is getting him treated.
The founder of the NGO told Deccan Chronicle,
Psychological studies have shown that individuals who mistreat or brutalise animals can often exhibit psychopathic tendencies and commit far more heinous crimes in the future, including rape and homicide. Here’s hoping the monsters who tortured and brutalised the animal are caught and severely punished.
