Horrific animal cruelty as man pours water over a dog so it freezes to death encased in ice

By The Siberian Times reporter
27 November 2017

Loyal pet was freed but sadly died after being rushed to the vet by animal activists after suffering hypothermia in minus 32C.

The cruel owner in Yakutsk, the world's coldest, evidently wanted to get rid of the female one year old dog. The heartrending video shows the appalling cruelty of his treatment of the animal. 

Neighbours altered activists to the whimpering dog, frozen to the floor of its outside kennel, on one of the coldest days of the year in Yakutsk, the regional capital. 

Volunteers managed to free the poor animal and rush it to the vet, but he was unable to save the one year old, and gave it an injection to end its misery.

A female volunteer said: 'The eyes, I will never forget them. Did you ever see a man who wanted to live but who was already dying?

'The dog had exactly the same eyes, understanding everything, just unable to explain.'

The activists have demanded action against the unnamed man, with a petition signed by 10,000 people. 

'It's one thing is when your dog dies, but this man has many children,' said a volunteer. 

'Today he lets his dog die next to his house, and tomorrow the same may happen to his children.'

The activists are also complaining about alleged police inaction over the case, and a policy of the local mayor to clean up city by exterminating strays.

Now an MP in Moscow, Sergey Boyarsky, has taken up the case calling for a prosecution of the owner.

the innocent dog froze but the heart of this animal was so warm unlike the heart of the man who did this, his heart is frozen!!! some people are cruel you cant melt them their conscience is shallow or non existent!! but the dog who had all the feeling and pain in his eyes was the most real of all. I pray for the soul of the little dog running free in a warm heaven.

I hope this devil will be found and severely sanctioned. Animals deserve to live without suffering and no human should have any kind of rights for death on them. We should all fight against animal cruelty.

Que justice soit faite, et que ce sale individu aille en enfer, tout d'abord il faut lui faire subir la même chose, une lente agonie , attachez le dehors à -32° et arrosez le d'eau pour qu'il sache et qu'il connaisse la même souffrance que ce pauvre chien a subit, qu'il en crève ,
