This is the shocking moment a cruel store owner slams a tiny puppy down on the road as a larger dog apparently tries to rescue it from its tormentor by dragging it away in its jaws.
The incident took place near the city of Manali in the district of Chennai in the state of Tamil Nadu in India, when the store owner, named only as Balamurugan, lured a puppy that was wandering around with another dog.
The video caught on CCTV shows the man standing next to his motorbike and apparently luring the puppy to his side as he was about to give it something.
But then he grabs it by the neck as it seemingly begins to whimper alerting a bigger dog that approaches.
The man then violently throws the puppy down onto the ground in front of the other dog.
The footage continues as a few more dogs gather around the man and the injured puppy that does not move.
One of the dogs grabs the puppy and moves it away from the man, but the puppy apparently disoriented, runs back to its attacker.
The store owner was reportedly arrested three weeks after the incident, when a student from a Law College filed a complaint.
According to local media, the severely injured puppy is recovering, although it is not clear who rescued it.
Netizen ‘Rhea Sharma’ commented: “Scumbag, you will rot in hell what is wrong with people, I hate animal cruelty.”
And ‘Doyyee A Tripathi’ added: “Bloody ruthless man! Shame. He will rot in hell till the universe ends!” (sic)
