This video has cause a lot of controversies within the animal activist groups. There are plenty unreasonable responses, and when I tried to address them, I'm labelled as cruel and heartless for simply pointing out it is legal under the animal protection act, and the laws were specifically written to address this types of situations to spare mortally injured animals from needless suffering.
I don't see any responses about what are the alternatives, and the right course of action. I also pointed out if that was indeed "in the city", which in Nantou, even Puli doesn't really come close to being a "city", then surely there are plenty of locals who should offer help. Instead, the locals just stood by, recording with their cellphones, and no one did a thing to help the dog, but were all quick to condemn the only person trying to do something to help the dog.
I doubt that person had any means of transportation to get the poor dog to a vet. The locals sure do, but none of them bothered. Judging by how the guts of the animal were all over the road, there's no point in calling animal rescue services such as http://www.lco.org.tw/report/
, it would take them over an hour just to get there.
If this sort of thing happened in Taipei, there's a animal rescue service by Taipei City. Tel: 02-8791-3064～5
Sad that instead of sharing these types of information, most discussions amongst local animal lovers are limited to hypocritical and hysterical rants.
