Dog DragingMangaluru : A video of a dog tied to a motorbike being dragged along a road in Surathkal went viral on social media platforms prompting animal rights activist to file a complaint against the accused.

In the video, two men on a motorbike are enjoying their ride as the dog is dragged along the service road in Surathkal area.

The moment the video surfaced, Tauseef Ahmed, the founder of Mr Rescuer, started following the case.

“It is suspected that the accused are labourers hailing from north Karnataka and staying in a colony in Tadambail in Surathkal. The incident reportedly took place on April 15 and they have left the place as soon as the video went viral. I have interacted with people from the colony. It is saddening to note the three legged dog has probably died. The community dog has been missing since the incident was reported. According to the neighbours, the accused were upset the dog had allegedly bitten one of their children,” Ahmed said.

Tauseef has also announced a reward of Rs 5,000 to anyone who provides information about the accused.

“We are trying to check for CCTV footage so that the bike used for the crime is identified. The cruelty towards animals has to end,” he said.

Suma Nayak, an animal rights activist and trustee of Animal Care Trust (ACT), has requested the public on social media to help in bringing the accused to task.

National Environment Care Federation (NECF) secretary Shashidhar Shetty has filed a complaint at the Surathkal police station in connection with the video.

The police said they have been informed about the incident and they are in the process of registering a case.
