In Gumi, North Gyeongsang Province, a dog owner mercilessly assaulting a dog has been revealed, causing public outrage.
The Companion Animal Rescue Association, a non-profit organization, reported a dog abuse case that occurred in Bonggok-dong, Gumi-si around 10 pm on the 8th. After posting a video of abuse on the official SNS on the 8th, the day of the incident, the association announced the temporary quarantine on the 9th, and reported the current status of the dog under protection on the 10th.
In the video of the abuse, the dog owner, who appears to be a middle-aged man, strikes the dog with a thick rope presumably a leash on the street and hits the dog several times. The white puppy lies face down on the floor and doesn’t make a single sound even when beaten. When the dog owner beckons, he gets up and runs away.
At the time, the association스포츠토토, which was dispatched after receiving a tip, reported it to the police and city hall. The association said, “The emergency dispatch for animal abuse, which started at 10:10 pm on the 8th, ended after 2 am on the 9th.”
If you look at the recent video released by the association, the rescued puppy shows off her tail to the association official with a bright expression as if she has found her stability. But the problem is not completely solved. This is because it is only a temporary quarantine until you receive a memorandum of abandonment of ownership from the dog owner.
The association said, “Quarantine for at least 5 days. During the quarantine period, I will do my best to take care of the rescued child.” Please be the strength of the association,” he appealed.Under the Animal Protection Act, if an animal is injured using tools or other methods, it is punishable by up to two years in prison or a fine of up to 20 million won. However, even if the animal is isolated from the abuser for a certain period of time, it must be returned if the abuser does not give up ownership and demands return. As a result, the need for amendment of the law is being raised by some in the political and legal circles. A bill to amend the Animal Protection Act has already been proposed in the National Assembly, but discussions are not taking place.
