Puppy Dragged Behind Motorcycle in Uiwang, S. Korea

[Update – 5/1/2013]


KAWA (Korean Animal Welfare Association) persuaded the old man to hand over the ownership of this puppy who wasn’t even treated properly for his injuries and took him to the hospital for treatment. Click here to see the photos from when KAWA visited the old man’s house with the police to pick him up. He has no broken legs but with abrasions all over the body, it is difficult for him to walk right now. Despite this ordeal, he is a sweet friendly puppy and he has been renamed as “Wang-gu”.

You can also see photos of “Yang-Yang-Yi” at the bottom of the same page, another KAWA rescue, being treated at the same hospital. His family abandoned him when they moved and he was hung by a metal hanger and struck in the head by a neighbor who was trying to eat him but he escaped. Now rescued and being cared for by KAWA, when he was found metal hanger around his neck has deeply cut into the skin with serious necrosis (death of tissue) and his skull was dent.

    This is horrific. What a cruel and evil way to treat a decenceless young dog. No compassion for animals. No legislation to help prevent this. Really sickens and angers me.

    Why the hell did they give the dog back to the man, after he had treated it this way? That is disgusting
