Shahrul Nizam, an animal activist, shared on his Facebook page today (11 August), a picture of a poor dog in Langkawi that was killed with two arrows. The dog even had its collar on. Hence, it was not even a stray. Sharul Nizam wrote,
“A dog is killed without permission and with inhumane, cruel methods. Who is responsible for this?”
He meticulously provides three legal methods to charge the culprit — but he needs the help of the public.
Shahrul notes that if there is no confession, he calls upon Malaysians who have witnessed or have a recording of the act to assist in investigations. The reason is that it’s challenging to charge someone for violating the Animal Welfare Act 2015 (Act 772) without this crucial evidence.
Additionally, if anyone has seen their neighbours or the people around them, carrying or keeping bows and arrows in their cars or bags, they are requested to make a police report so that the authorities can investigate under the Hazardous Materials and Weapons Act 1958 (Act 357).
Thirdly, if the dog has a proven owner, they can be charged under Section 33, Animal Welfare Act 2015 (Act 772) for failing to protect their pet. If the owner let it wander around on its own and it was exposed to injuries and even death, they must bear the legal consequences.
Sharul’s legal knowledge has brought us one step closer to finding the dog’s killer and bringing them to justice. Let’s work together, OK?
