This horrific act happened in Warri, Delta State, Nigeria.
As shown above – the face and back wounds inflicted by the Warri-based medical doctor
The dog was rushed to the doctor with a deep and gaping machete slash right on its face as seen in the picture. According to sources, the perpetrator of this act who is a Medical Doctor accused the dog of killing his wife’s stray chicken. In his anger, he then proceeded to carry out his revenge by taking a machete and slashing the dog right on the face and back.
Luckily for the dog, a team of super veterinary surgeons led by Dr Gani Enahoro at Gan-Rovet Animal Hospital were available for him and they swung into action to close and treat the gaping face and back woulds.
….. Other dogs might not have been so lucky to have such a great team on ground!
Apart from the obvious disfiguration that this will cause, there might be other accompanying damage to vital organs on the face which the dog might have to live with for the rest of his life. We wish this dog a safe and quick recovery.
We sincerely hope and look forward to establishing laws that support animal rights, prevent animal cruelty and bring perpetrators of animal cruelty to justice.
