Attack with wooden logs on Indie dog in Bengaluru - Three arrested

Bengaluru, Oct 6 (IANS): Karnataka police arrested three persons for beating their neighbour's adopted Indie dog with wooden logs in Bhattarahalli locality of K. R. Puram in Bengaluru, police said on Thursday.

According to police, Gaddigappa, a resident of Bhattarahalli, adopted the street dog and was nursing it for three years. The family called it Rachchu.

On October 3, when Rachchu had gone out, there started a quarrel with the pet dog of Nagaraju from the neighbourhood. Rachchu bit the other pet dog.

After coming to know about the incident, Gaddigappa rushed to the spot and took his dog home. However, the incident angered the sons of Nagaraju - Rahul, Ranjith and Rajath.

They entered the premises of Gaddigappa's house and beat the sleeping dog with wooden logs. When Gaddigappa tried to rescue the dog, the trio also allegedly assaulted him.

This led to a fight between the two families; neighbours intervened and peace prevailed. Gaddigappa, after taking the dog for the treatment at a veterinary hospital, lodged a complaint with police regarding the incident.

The video of the boys beating up the dog had gone viral on social media and animal lovers demanded action against the accused persons.

The police registered a case under the IPC and the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act and arrested the accused. Further investigation is on.

    Some insane people think that planet is made only for humans. If dogs had same intelligence as humans, things would have been different. Even ants were created by the same spirit who created humans.

    If dogs had same intelligence as humans, why did Rachchu bite the other dog? Street dogs are a menace to the society like any other pests. Either adopt them or let them be killed. Else they start biting humans for food

    Street dogs have become menace only because of two legged animals, who keep them for their benefit and once they litter, will dump the puppies on the streets....
