Two Arrested For Burying A Dog Alive

Just when you thought that you read it all about animal abuse you come across an article where two janitors who worked at a school in Khayelitsha, South Africa buried a dog alive.

Luckily someone called the Mdzananda Animal Clinic in Khayelitsha and they were able to save the dog who is now being called Warrior.

The spokeswoman for the International Fund for Animal Welfare said: Veterinarian Dr Edson Man’Ombe and Animal Welfare carer Lazola Sotyingwa immediately rushed to the school and apprehended two janitors on the school field. The men initially claimed the dog was dead, but on further questioning admitted the animal was still alive when they buried it. The dog's fine. It's in good condition. It's eating ravenously now. The dog is slightly disabled, probably as a result of earlier injuries from a motor vehicle accident. It is limping quite badly. It’s got a lot of sand in its eyes and they'll continue to flush it out.
