It's getting harder by the day to comprehend where we, as a race, are headed. Why do we abuse our power over mute and harmless beings?
According to the Daily Mail, a Russian dog owner in Yakutsk, the coldest city in the world, deliberately poured cold water over his dog and put her outside to die, where the temperature was a freezing -32°C.
Rescuers found the whimpering, shaking dog while she was still alive. She had been frozen solid to the ground, forming almost an ice block, with only one free paw that she was pathetically waving, pleading for release.
The eyes of the dog tell her story of misery, of how frightened and helpless she felt.
The animal activists managed to free the poor animal and rushed it to the vet. However, despite their efforts, the one-year old could not be saved. The vet put the dog down to end her agony.
A volunteer told the Daily Mail:
"The eyes, I will never forget them. Did you ever see a man who wanted to live but who was already dying? The dog had exactly the same eyes, understanding everything, just unable to explain."
The man should not be let scot free and thus the activists have started a petition against him which has by far been signed by 10,000 Russians.
The volunteers are concerned that with this sort of mindset, the man can even leave even his own children to die near the house.
The dog owner has reportedly neglected the dog on earlier occasions too.
You can see the helplessness of the poor dog in the video.
It's really sad that people continue mistreating animals when all they do is give us love.
