New Delhi [India], July 4 (ANI): In a gruesome incident of cruelty, a morning walker infuriated with a dog used an iron rod to deliver a terrible blow on the animal's head and also picked the dog by its tail to fling it away.
The entire incident was caught on video in Delhi's Paschim Vihar on Sunday.
The video shows the accused not only brutally attacking the dog but also using the rod to swing out at those who rushed to intervene and save the dog.
