Sleeping Dog In India Dies After Construction Workers Poured Hot Tar On It

While many of us around the world are trying to save and protect animals everywhere, there are still some rather heartless people on this earth who couldn’t care less about these wonderful creatures.

Recently, street workers in Agra, India had caused an uproar when they were intentionally poured hot molting tar on a sleeping dog, causing half of its body to be buried alive and was then left to die. The incident happened near the Taj Mahal last Tuesday, June 12.

Protesters and animal rights activist were outraged at this when a disturbing video of the animal’s dead body went viral online. They said that the workers had poured the tar on half of the dog’s body before flattening it with a roller and leaving it there to suffer and die, instead of chasing the dog away before they work.

Shockingly, the workers argued that the dog seemed to already be dead when they began their work on the road. However, bystanders and other witnesses beg to differ and told the authorities that the dog was in agony the entire time.

A local resident, Virendra Singh told Daily Mail,

“The dog’s legs were buried under the tar and it was writing in agony. The workers refused to break the road to remove it. The dog died after.”

Eventually, a digger was brought in to detach the dead dog from the road.

However, it is unfortunate that the workers were granted bail as the court was not able to determine if the dog was dead or alive when the brutal deed was done. The police apparently did not carry out a post-mortem on the dog’s remains so there was no evidence to prove anything.

Sadar police station in-charge inspector, Narendra Kumar Singh said,

“The accused have been booked under IPC sections 428 and 429 (cruelty to animals), apart from section 11 of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.

“On Thursday, they were granted bail, but we will thoroughly investigate the case and will question the owner of the construction company if the need arises.”

Local residents and animal activists gathered to where the dog was brutally and mercilessly killed and stage a demonstration against the Public Works Department (PWD), the authority in charge for the road work.

PWD executive engineer, Naresh Kumar, said,

“The entire matter is highly upsetting. We have sought an explanation from the contractor after which suitable action will be taken.”
