Man Kills Dog with Hot Oil

In another incident of animal cruelty and human insensitivity, an eatery owner in India killed a lactating female dog, a mother of new born puppies, by pouring hot oil over her mouth. The female dog had given birth to a litter in the area a few days ago and had stayed too close to the eatery in search of food. This enrage the eatery owner and he poured hot oil over the female dog's mouth which killed her. She suffered excruciating pain before dying.

The pathetic, cruel, barbaric eatery owner should have shown some compassion and given the mother some leftovers everyday, which he would have thrown away in any case, instead he decided to kill her! The growing intolerance, insensitivity and hatred towards animals, apparently for no reasons, has reached alarming levels and ignorant people need to be given a lesson or two in love, compassion and tolerance.

It is very difficult to come to therms with this mindless violence resulting in the unfortunate death of a mother of newly born pups. One wonders what has happened to the society and why can't we let animals be on their own! Animals use the resources Mother Earth has given them. They never try to reproduce anything like us humans. They never pollute, lie, conspire or steal...yet we are intolerant towards them. We need to know and understand the fact very clearly that if there are no animals left on the planet, we won't be here either, too!

Woman breastfeeds puppy to save him...

In the US, a woman, who has compassion in abundance, breastfed a newborn puppy in order to save its life because the pooch was refusing to be fed from a bottle or have canine formula. This woman from Colorado, posted a photo of her breastfeeding an orphaned four day old puppy on her Face Book page and explained the reason to do so.

She said, "He just wasn't taking it. I didn't know what else to do, I was desperate and I just couldn't bear sitting there watching it die. I never thought I would ever do that. It was taboo to me as well. But I did the right thing. That dog is alive because I took the initiative."

This act of extreme kindness and courage is commendable and we only wish there were more people in the world today like this kind lady. Animals sure deserve a better life and we must make all the efforts to ensure their safety and well-being. In order to survive on this planet, we need to have animals more than they need us.
