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.

This activist presumably knows where this bastard lives. How about giving him something to remember?

What purpose do articles like this serve?

The world is full of horrible people, we all know that.

What can a story like this achieve other than to perhaps give other people horrible ideas.

We who read it and feel horror can do nothing to help the dog or the man.

These stories are depressing and do nothing to improve the human race.

Jeder Mensch, der einem Tier etwas zu leide tut sollte anstelle von den unschuldigen, gequälten Tieren die Versuchs Laboratorien verbannt werden - bis zu seinem Lebensende.

Wat een godvergeten vuile klootzak die dit heeft gedaan!! Mijn hart huilt om deze hond, ik ben al dagen van slag, kan er niet van slapen. Arm, arm, lief dier. Hoe kan iemand zo intens wreed en harteloos zijn?

I agree with all the comments. And if I had the means and time I would love to visit this man and do something likewise to him. But I am sure that he is hiding by now. Wouldn't it be nice to know that he is suffering greatly by all this attention? I don't know what the laws are in Siberia, but here in the United States we don't stand for that and there ARE laws protecting animals from cruelty.

The cruelty of the human being knows no limits. I'm ashamed to be part of that kind of humanity.

totally heart broke by this story - any human that can do that to an innocent animal deserves to be locked up and have the key thrown away!
