Dog beaten up to teach other strays a 'lesson' in Mumbai's Worli area

Mumbai: A stray dog was mercilessly beaten up by security guards in Worli, Mumbai after it took shelter at a building during the heavy rains. Two of the accused were arrested but were let off later on bail. The video of the incident has been going viral on social media. The dog is in a coma and is undergoing treatment. It is being alleged that the people living on the fourth floor of the building asked the security guards to thrash the dog in such a way that no other stray ever comes into the building. In the video, the dog can be seen writhing in pain as the security guards look at him from a distance. After the incident surfaced, the police registered a case and arrested the two accused but they were later released on bail. Bombay Animal Rights took cognizance of the incident and an FIR has been registered. Incidents like these hold testimony to the shallow nature of human beings who are blinded by success and status. On one hand, the rich of the country shell thousands to buy dogs as 'status symbols' while on the other hand, they despise homeless animals. Left at the mercy of these people, several strays are left to die in the so-called 'developed' and 'urban' parts of the country.
