In yet another incident of animal cruelty which proves humans are slowly blurring
the lines between humans and animals, a 21 YO mechanical engineering student Vishesh Iyengar threw a 1-month-old puppy from the terrace of his house.

Reportedly, the crime was committed on 24th October but came to light after the accused
confessed about his actions in a Whatsapp group. Animal Welfare worker Shravan Krishnan received a message from the caretakers about the incident.They also alleged that earlier also he had murdered one more puppy in a similar manner.

Shravan posted about the incident on Facebook :

“Another case of cruelty committed by a young student from a reputed college in Vellore. We received a message from a few students that one of their college mates had thrown 2 puppies from his terrace and kill them. Dinesh Baba, Nishanth Nichu and I immediately rushed to Katpadi K1 station, Vellore. A FIR has been lodged. The body of the dead pup will be exhumed and sent for PM.

Message we received :
“For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed he who sows the seeds of murder and pain cannot reap the joy of love.”
We took in a 1-month-old puppy who was attacked by other big street dogs, badly bruised. We got him vaccinated, fed him daily and were so thankful for his presence in our lives. He was a small bundle of love and in no time everyone in the house got attached to him.

Sadly, one unfortunate day he wandered out of the house and reached the house of Vishesh Iyengar. This person, Vishesh, already had a history of torturing the street puppies by placing them at high heights and waiting for them to fall down.

This animal, Vishesh, took the puppy to the terrace and threw him off and the puppy died on the spot. Upon investigation from his neighbors, we got to know that our puppy wasn’t the only one he had killed and just a day ago he had thrown another black puppy off the terrace. Also, after killing the first puppy he posted on a Whatsapp group ‘1 down, 1 more to go, doggy tales’ and upon questioning by the group members he openly admitted that he had killed a puppy. With his message, it is clearly evident that he already had plans of getting his hands on the other puppy (our pet).

The excuse he gave for killing the 2 puppies :
‘It peed on my clothes dude
Though his Whatsapp messages clearly indicate that he did not need any excuse to do what he had planned and did it just to get himself off
What is even more devastating is that this person has no remorse, no guilt, and no shame and to make it worse he says “it’s just a dog, I didn’t kill a human”.

The video shows people burying the puppy once it was confirmed it is no more alive.

An FIR has been filed against Vishesh under IPC Section 429 (Mischief by killing or maiming cattle, etc. of any value or any animal of the value of fifty rupees). He has also been booked under section 11 (1) of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act which defines cruelty to animals.

Looking at the nature of punishment such animal abusers receive we are not sure whether
action against the accused will make any change to him.We are certainly moving
towards a world where the evil deeds of humans will put even animals to shame.
