A shocking incident captured in a viral video shared by a Facebook user showcases a vile act of animal cruelty that has sparked outrage on social media. The CCTV recording shows a man brutally attacking a dog with a stick, leaving the poor animal writhing in pain.

It is believed that the man subsequently set the dog on fire, using aerosol gas and a lighter. The dog, which was simply resting by a staircase when assailed by the man, eventually escaped the scene with visible burns to its back.

The following video contains disturbing elements of animal abuse. Viewer discretion is advised.

The matter, which is reported to have taken place outside a veterinary clinic in Johor Bahru, has been reported to the Department Of Veterinary Service, and a police report has also been lodged. Reports state that the incident occurred at approximately 2 a.m. on March 27th.

Veterinarian Salehatul Khuzaimah confirmed via Instagram that the perpetrator has been identified, and expressed her hope that the authorities will take substantial action, especially with the video evidence at hand.

The dog is currently receiving treatment at Vetmedic Petlover, at Jalan Impian Emas.

According to reports, the individual in question is accused of having been present in the same vicinity on three different occasions, specifically March 8th, March 14th, and the most recent incident on March 27th.

Allegedly, during each of these instances, the perpetrator caused harm to dogs in the area. In fact, CCTV footage indicates that on one of the previous occasions, he even hurled a brick at the poor animals.

Earlier this week, JUICE published a similar incident in which a 41-year-old truck driver, Mohd Zainal Mat Daham, entered a not-guilty plea in front of the Sessions Court to a charge of animal cruelty.

He was accused of brutally beating a puppy, fracturing the bones in its right front and back legs, with a wooden stick. A statement claims that people on the street attempted to rescue the dog but were violently threatened by the man if they did so. Cera was reportedly bleeding from its ears, eyes, and nose after being struck more than ten times.
