A VIDEO of a cruel attack on a dog in Puchong has gone viral on Facebook, enraging Malaysians. The CCTV footage, posted on Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better Facebook page, shows a man cycling into Taman Melody in Bandar Kinrara, at 8.49pm on April 2.

As the man approaches the guard house of the residential area, a guard dog runs towards his bicycle and barks at him, causing him to fall of the bicycle.

The man, who had another pet dog in the basket of his bicycle, angrily picks up the dog by its neck. The guard tries to stop him from hurting the dog but is verbally assaulted.

What ensues in the next few minutes would make any animal lover's blood boil.

The man repeatedly punches the dog and even uses a crash helmet to hit the dog, as the guard watches on helplessly. The smaller pet dog can be seen barking throughout the incident. After torturing the animal, he dumps the dog behind the guardhouse.

The post was shared over 1,000 times within four hours.

There has also been an online petition by NGOs asking the police to arrest the man. Alleged pictures of the perpetrator were soon spread online via social media, with many netizens hurling abuse at the perpetrator.
