A Malaysian animal lover is demanding justice for a dog that died due to an open stomach in Setia Alam yesterday, 24 November
Nurul Ain is an animal activist who shelters over 400 cats and 12 dogs under non-governmental organisation S.I. Home Shelter based in Shah Alam, Selangor.
She was notified by her followers about a dog that needed urgent rescue in the Island of Life Wetland, Setia Alam after a tweet depicting the dog with an open stomach went viral on Saturday, 23 November.
The Twitter user was asking netizens to send help for the injured dog
"Can anyone help to save this dog? Pity it," the viral post with over 13,000 retweets read.
The photos Fuad posted showed a brown-furred dog with its digestive organs dangling out of its body as it loitered on a roadside curb.
Fuad contacted Ain after finding out that she works with an animal shelter and the two agreed to meet that night to look for the dog
"Kak Ain volunteered to rescue the dog. So we have planned to find the dog even though it's 12am now," Fuad updated in the viral thread.
According to Ain, Fuad arrived earlier and failed to find the dog in the pitch-black park
Fuad then witnessed Ain carried the dog's corpse into her car
"Ain used an umbrella to cover the dog as she carried it into her car," Fuad related.
"I was moved as I watched her carry the dog."
After the incident, Ain believed that the dog must have been abused by someone
In an Instagram post, she expressed her determination to find the truth behind the dog's demise.
"I'm sure there were people who mistreated it," Ain wrote.
"To those who dare (to view the pictures), please look at the wound.
"It looks 'pretty' right? The wound has a neat cut, isn't it? There are no other injuries on its body, there are no signs of injuries on its hands and legs due to car collision too."
"You might say the dog may have (carelessly) ran into something sharp, but would the wound look like this (neat)?
"No! Impossible!!" Ain exclaimed, reaffirming her belief that the wound was intentional.
Ain said she will contact the property developer and review the necessary closed-circuit televisions (CCTV) footage to uncover the truth
She reasoned that it is important to find the culprit because it involved a life, adding that the same incident could happen again if no action was taken.
Ain then urged those with information to contact her or report to the authorities.
