UPDATE: Reward offered for dog beater

The dog’s gut-wrenching howl can be heard echoing for miles.

A HUGE reward has been issued for any information on a man seen abusing a dog in a video.

The video surfaced last week and immediately got the attention of the Soweto Animal Rescue and Advisory Centre.

The centre who has spearheaded a hunt for the brutal dog abuser have on the weekend offered a reward of R5 000 for any information on the culprit which may lead to the arrest of the suspect.

“We appeal to any member of the public who might know the identity of the suspect to contact our anonymous and confidential number on 084 911 9459 with any information which could lead to his arrest. We are confident he will soon be captured and the dog saved,” said the statement.

The video, which is brutally graphic, shows a man holding a cross-terrier with his left hand and beating it with his right. The man keeps on striking the dog despite the dog’s desperate yelps.

After battering the dog, the man throws it to the floor. The dog lands on its back, still yelping and somehow gets on its feet to make the escape.
