STOP THESE DOG ABUSERS!!
It breaks my heart to see a recent footage of a toy poodle being abused by it's owners and being filmed as well. At the time of writing this, it seems that the abusers are yet to be caught and justice is not brought for the abuse of this dog.
I am going to attached here a footage of the dog being abused and please be warned that it is rather disturbing.
Attached screenshot links if you don't want to watch the whole video
I saw this through a link that was sent to me and I wanted to do my part to assist with the manhunt of these abusers. In the footage, the dog was severely punished for not standing on it's hind legs. It was hit on the face and thrown across the room repeatedly and it clearly showed that the dog was exhausted and terrified.
I find it so difficult to watch the footage and I can't imagine how the person holding the camera could actually filmed and watch the dog being abused and not stand up and protect the dog. I can't understand what is wrong with these people who could succumb to something so low and in humane. Is this the future of mankind if left 'untreated'?
This footage has indeed caused outrage amongst not only animal lovers but any decent human being. A lot of anger were vent out on the social network sites but what was done to prevent this or even to bring these abusers to face their punishment?
This was discovered when the pen drive containing the footage was found within the vicinity of KLCC and was then aired on youtube which lead to an outspread through the social network links. It is through these links that the two abusers were apparently identified as Allan Tan & Doreen Loo and the abuse toy poodle was called Sushi. It seems that the poodle had died from it's owner's abused and the next victim in line is a new shih tzu that these abusers now own. There is already a photo showing the shih tzu standing on it's hind legs which leads to a probable conclusion that this new dog could also be abused into performing such circus act.
So what have been done to try to bring these abusers to face their punishment? A local newspaper published this news and an online petition was formed to urge the authorities to put these abusers behind bars. The maximum penalty for animal abuse in Malaysia is only RM200 (USD65) and /or 6 months imprisonment which is definitely way too lenient. This in my opinion got to change with stiffer fines and imprisonment to deter other possible animal abusers out there in Malaysia.
It is sad that from the information that I gathered, Sushi the abused toy poodle died and now these two abusers own a shih tzu who is already ''trained'' to stand on hind legs. If you are reading my hubpage and have the authority to do something about this, please I urge you to ensure the abusers are caught and put behind bars. Something must be done to stop such violence. A suggestion perhaps to put a note on their passports as 'Animal Abusers'..perhaps make them carry a stamp of shame for the rest of their lives.
I have included the link below for you to sign the petition to bring these criminals the punishments that they should face and not walk away Scot free.
HD5 News reporting this incident and the search for the abusers are still on.
Mission to save to track the abusers
A group of people are now being formed and spearheaded by Andrew Boey are tracking down the abusers to save the lives of the dog or dogs (if sushi is still alive) and to ensure the abusers are caught and punished for their criminal act.
This gentleman and his team managed to raise funds donated by the people who wanted to help locate the abusers and save the dog(s). With the monies, a Private Investigator from an International Firm was hired and they also got a legal advisor assisting them in this case.
Now they are in pursuit of tracking the abusers down and had gather not only information but manpower from the public who had volunteered to assist in the hunt. However the team still need manpower to physically look for the abusers and if you would like to participate in this manhunt please visit this site for more information.
Anyone who wish to donate to assist them in their mission the link is as follows: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Andrew-Michelles-Save-the-Poodle-Mission/160126524037293
We wish Andrew and his team the best of luck in their mission to save the dog(s) and bring these abusers in to face the punishment they deserve.
Looking for updates 4th Feb 2010
Well, it is the 2nd day of Chinese New Year today... so will it be a taboo subject to talk about such inauspicious topics..I don't know..but what I know is that I am still wondering about the fate of the dogs and if the dog abusers are being rooted out?
Society did try to help..but did the Malaysian police force intervene with the promise that they will seek these felons out..what will happen?? Will it be swept under the carpet?? or will it be solved??Unfortunately from my past experience..the theft case that i reported about 4 years ago is still unresolved...
Anyway, to stay focus on this particular case..i followed the Andrew & Michelle's facebook link to monitor the situation..and the donations collected to hire private investigators are now being refunded and the case is apparently in the hands of the Malaysian Police. In the first place, why would the public try to resort in trying to help each other out to resolve such cases..Do we not have confidence in the Malaysian Police Force?
Well..sad to say.. I think this case has gone cold.. let's just keep our fingers crossed that someone will do something about it. If the law cannot solve this..we will have to succumb to the hands of the divine.
links to reports by the local newspaper
Updates 18 April
I don't even know where to start looking for answers..Bottom line is that these 2 abusers are still out on the loose. SPCA is also looking into this and a police report was made.. But as I suspected, the malaysian police will probably not look into this matter or push it further and hope that people will forget.
However, this case brought awareness to many people about cruelty towards animals and hopefully other animal abusers or potential abusers will think twice before committing such crime.
Updates 15 November
Been checking for updates from time to time but unfortunately they aren't any positive news to date. It seems that Doreen Loo now have a new facebook page with a picture of her holding another dog.
Updates 19 January 2012
As per the per the picture beside, this gentleman received over 130 calls accusing him of abusing the poodle. It seems that someone created a twitter account as one of the abusers, using the gentleman's phone number. More of this as per the link below:
Doreen & Friends
I was just wondering if her friends were questioned by the authorities of the whereabouts of Doreen Loo? I am living on the other side of the world and I was able to find out the possible links that the abusers would have with.
As time goes by, been a year now since I started this hub and still no news of catching the dog abusers. Well, it comes as no surprise as I've said earlier that the local authorities will pay no or very little attention on this matter and hope that it will be forgotten. But I will continue to do my part as best as I could to remind society justice is still not brought forward and I will continue to collect and report as much information as I could.
So, as identified on facebook (photo below), her friends posing with her are as follows:
