Urgent Alert: Ask Malaysian Authorities to Crack Down on Puppy Killers

Stray dogMalaysians are outraged by a recent heartless attack on a dog named Kanilla in Cyberjaya, Malaysia—and they want their government to know about it!

A video recently posted on YouTube shows a group of men, believed to be students at Malaysia’s Multimedia University, killing Kanilla by forcibly throwing her down a manhole. The video, which has since been removed, also apparently shows the men running away laughing after the event.

Still photographs taken from the video show the petrified dog spread eagling herself across the opening of the manhole in a desperate attempt to prevent the men from forcing her into it—but her struggles were no match for her ruthless murderers.

Kanilla’s abusers had offered to care for the 6-month-old puppy while her owner was on vacation. Upon his return, her distraught owner was shown the video, and with the help of the Selangor Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, he immediately lodged a report at the Cyberjaya Police Station.

Since then, angry animal lovers across Malaysia have been encouraged to contact their local police station and report the incident to show the authorities that this type of animal abuse is simply not acceptable.

The Malaysian government is currently considering the introduction of new animal welfare legislation that would offer animals greater protection from neglect and abuse. Although this legislation will come too late to save Kanilla, it could at least ensure that her attackers are punished appropriately for their heinous crime.

What You Can Do

  • If you live outside Malaysia, contact your local Malaysian embassy and ask officials to do everything in their power to bring Kanilla’s murderers to justice.
  • If you are a Malaysian resident, report the incident to your local police station.
  • Write a letter to your local paper asking people to speak up and never be silent when an animal is being abused.
  • Contact Dr. Abd. Aziz Jamaluddin, the director-general of the Department of Veterinary Services, at kp@dvs.gov.my and tell him how important it is for Malaysia to implement these new animal welfare laws and to prosecute the abusers of Kanilla appropriately.

    Poor dog. Those heartless man should pay for what they did. No one has the right to do those horrible things. When did this happen?

    The Malaysian laws against cruelty to animals is very wimpy, and as a result 99% of the cases are “not worth the effort” to prosecute perpetrators. The law is a maximum fine of RM200 (approx US$65) and/or 6 months jail time, and so far only one person was jailed 2 days!!

    I am horrified that little Kanilla was killed by these senseless individuals. And for what? If it was up to me I would just euthanise these sadists. I am afraid they are a complete waste of space and don’t deserve to breathe the same air as the rest of us. What use will they be in the future to society if already they betray the trust of Kanilla’s owner for whom life will never be the same again, and take the life of a defenceless puppy for no reason at all except sadism. Tomorrow when I have access to my email I will send a message to Malaysian government. In the meantime rest in peace little Kanilla. You never really got the chance to live. I will always remember you. Courage to your owner. I feel deeply for him.
