Man posts dead dog’s picture on Facebook, draws flakJune 1st, 2011 - 10:11 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, June 1 (IANS) An umbrella body of animal protection organisations Wednesday demanded action against a Delhi resident who allegedly killed a dog and uploaded its picture on his Facebook page.
“Ashutosh Kumar Sinha on May 26 posted a photograph of a dead dog on his Facebook page and admitted to killing it. In his own statement on Facebook, he said that he killed the dog as it used to bark too much in the night,” said Arpan Sharma of the Federation of Indian Animal Protection Organisations (FIAPO).
“When we called him on his mobile phone he told us that he did not kill the dog, but uploaded the picture of a dog which was already dead. However, if you go through his profile and the comments made on the picture, it is crystal clear that Sinha killed that dog,” he said.
According to his Facebook profile, Sinha hails from Patna, but is living in Delhi.
The FIAPO also said it had written a letter to Bihar’s director general of police and the joint commissioner of Delhi Police demanding action against Sinha.
“Instances such as these indicate a disturbing trend. People who are violent to animals rarely stop there. Studies show that people who abuse their animal companions are likely to abuse their kids as well,” Sharma added.
