Pregnant dog abandoned, tied with wire by owner; unable to feed puppies after giving birth
Munnar: In a brutal act, a pregnant dog was abandoned by its owner in a tea plantation. The dog was tied with a metal wire in order to stop from following the owner. The animal gave birth to five puppies in this condition and was unable to feed them.
The heartbreaking incident took place in Old Munnar. The canine mother and the five newborn puppies were struggling for help. The owner of the dog is yet to be identified. It is learnt that the dog was tied with wire so that it would not go back to the owner’s house.
The people residing near the tea plantation found the dog and puppies after they kept whining. By the time, the dog and puppies were exhausted. Though fire force and panchayat authorities were contacted, nobody arrived immediately.
The dog kept resisting when strangers came near. So, they could not untie the wire or feed the dog for a long time. Finally, it was rescued after many hours of effort.
