Screengrabs: Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB)
Two men first volunteered to care for a housemate's pet dog, but later said it had run away. They had actually thrown the dog into a manhole in Cyberjaya, Malaysia.
According to a report in The Star/Asia News Network, the owner is a student from Jordan who went back home on June 24. The owner's housemate's friend, a Somali student, offered to care for the pet dog, Kanilla, for a month. Kanilla was a cross between a Pitt Bull and a Dalmation.
However, on July 19, the owner received a shocking message which claimed that Kanilla had run away. Even more shocking was the video shown to the owner by his housemate when he returned to Malaysia on July 26.
The video showed the Somali student and another accomplice throwing his pet dog into a manhole in Cyberjaya. They had apparently used his housemate's laptop to transfer some files, including the video and had forgotten to erase them afterwards.
The owner has since lodged a police report at the Cyberjaya police station on July 31 with help from the Selangor Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).
The video stills were also posted on the facebook page of Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB), which had garnered angry responses from netizens.
