CHENNAI, JULY 06: A dog thrown down from a two-storied building has been found alive. She has suffered a fracture, and will be under treatment. "What breaks my heart is that she was still wagging her tail," her rescuer Sharavan posted on Facebook.
Shravan Krishnan's post has brought a sigh of relief in the city, which had been outraged by the video that showed a smiling, rotund man holding the dog on the edge of a terrace by the scruff of her neck, and then hurling her down. Seconds before she was thrown down, the dog was seen wagging its tail.
As the video was circulated across social media, locals stepped forward to identify the dog-thrower and the horror film maker. Gautam Sudarshan and Ashish Pal were identified as medical students in Chennai.
The police filed a FIR and said the two were hiding in their hometowns. "Their parents are bringing them to Chennai from Tirunelvelli and Kanyakumari. We expect them to be here by noon. We would arrest them," an officer said.
Strict actions should be taken against culprits so that nobody dares to do such an act again. Cross Town News also urge to JMC/SMC to act against against animal cruelty in the state of Jammu & Kashmir.
