Anger over puppy abuse photo

The photograph, which has been widely distributed over the Internet, shows two men hanging a puppy with string. Both men were showing an obscene gesture with their fingers. Malaysian Animal Rights Society president N. Surendran said the photograph was one of the worst cases of animal abuse he had seen. “The fact that they were posing with the puppy shows they are confident no action will be taken against them,” he said after lodging a report at the Brickfields district police headquarters here.
