Horrifying footage of a dog tied in a crucifixion position and being pelted with cigarettes has outraged animal rights activists (video below).
The video was originally shared on WhatsApp and Facebook. It features the dog being pelted with cigarettes and shoes as its abusers laugh in the background. The dog can be seen attempting to cover its face during the beating, via the video on Grand Report.
“Please make this video viral,” Laxmi Agarwai, the woman who originally shared the video, wrote. “We need to find the location and details of [the] culprits.”
Some have since called for the FBI to investigate, while others have suggested that the dog’s abusers also be tied up and tortured. The FBI believes the incident is outside its jurisdiction, according to Scallywag & Vagabond.
“Day by day it is making me mentally sick that I belong to the human race,” one commenter wrote. “Seriously wtf is wrong with people.”
Currently, the dog’s condition is not known.
As of Feb. 17, the video has been shared more than 2,300 times.
