A shopkeeper from Mysore, Melahalli Ramanna tied a mouse to a jar and beat it with a stick. Yes, you read it right! He tied the rodent with a green string attached to its limbs at his shop after he caught it stealing food. According to the reports, the mouse had been raiding the shop every night eating groceries and destroying other items.
The horrible incident was recorded on a mobile phone by Ramanna’s friend. He can be heard repeatedly asking:
“Will it eat gram flour and wheat again?”.
Anthony Rubin, an animal welfare officer from Chennai, India, said:
“This is truly a disturbing video. I do not know where the world is heading. How can a person torture an animal like that?”
“These people are a serious threat to the society and actions should be taken against this person so he knows what is right and what is wrong. This is not how an animal should be treated. This is torture.”
