He urged the public to come forward if they have any information on the incident

Any information of the perpetrator such as the name, address, and telephone number can be channeled to [email protected]

Disaat Warga Malaysia sedang gembira meraikan Aidilfitri terdapat insan zalim yang melakukan kekejaman terhadap haiwan. Ianya tidak pernah habis malah sentiasa berlaku dan menjadi trend bergurau senda dengan nyawa makhluk hidup. Kejadian mencekik ayam hidup yang tidak mampu melawan hingga kejang kaki bukan satu gurauan sihat dan merupakan titik permulaan untuk kes kekejaman lain terhadap manusia. Kejadian di Mukim Kuala Dungun, Daerah Dungun Negeri Terengganu ini menunjukkan masih ramai warga Malaysia tidak mempunyai maklumat dan tidak memahami mengenai kesalahan jenayah haiwan (pencegahan kezaliman) di bawah Akta Kebajikan Haiwan 2015 walaupun perlakuan tersebut hanya untuk gurau senda dan dilakukan secara suka-suka apatah lagi melibatkan kematian haiwan. Walaupun mangsa hanya seekor ayam namun perbuatan yang dilakukan pemuda ini tidak boleh dianggap ringan. Animal Malaysia menggesa pihak Jabatan Perkhidmatan Veterinar Malaysia melakukan siasatan menyeluruh dan mengheret pelaku kejam terhadap ayam ini ke muka pengadilan dan dikenakan hukuman yang mampu mendidik sesiapa yang berniat tidak baik terhadap haiwan. Orang kampung di Mukim Kuala Dungun, Daerah Dungun Negeri Terengganu diminta tidak melindungi penjenayah dan pembuli haiwan ini. Mohon jejak pelaku durjana dan heret pelaku ini agar boleh ditangkap dan keadilan terhadap sang ayam malang dapat ditegakkan. Ahli keluarga pelaku zalim juga diminta tidak melindungi waris bersifat brutal dan bakal membahayakan nyawa manusia lain pada masa akan datang. Maklumat pelaku seperti nama, alamat dan nombor telefon pelaku boleh disalurkan ke email malaysiaanimal@gmail.com
