A man was caught on film stalking a stray dog before killing it with a bow and arrow in broad daylight.
Shot stray dog in the face
In an Instagram video posted by Persatuan Haiwan Terbiar (SAFM) on Saturday (Sept 24), it showed the man who was armed with a bow and arrow stalking the stray dog at a parking lot.
After locating his prey, the man then lets off an arrow and shoots the dog right in its face.
The creature could also be heard yelping in pain as the arrow struck it.
SAFM said the stray dog was later found dead with the arrow still lodged in its face.
The animal right activist group also said they had reasons to believe that the dog did not pose a danger to anyone and slammed the man for his cold-blooded act.
SAFM also urged those with additional info on the incident to contact via their hotline at 0162662007 or get in touch via their website.
