Dog-haters list methods to kill on Orkut

Archana Sharma | TNN

Mumbai: The thoughts are gory and the messages chilling. Tips on how to kill dogs are being circulated on social networking site Orkut, with 1,000 of its members—some apparently from ‘aamchi Mumbai’—forming an ‘I Hate Dogs’ community online. If so, their actions are illegal.
On Monday, the animal rights o r g a n i s at i o n , People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), wrote a letter to the cyber crime cell of the Mumbai police after repeated requests by animal lovers to ban the online
community received no response from the networking site.
By Wednesday, a dog was found in Andheri, Mumbai, with five air gun pellets in her body, one of them in her private parts. That is close to what someone called ‘Meldon Rodrigues’, member of the Orkut community, had exhorted fellow members to do: “Shoot them with airgun/pellets in their testicles.”
The Orkut jottings are disturbing, to say the least. Persons, purportedly from Mumbai, have boasted of throwing out a puppy from a high-rise window or running a car over a dog again and again until it dies.
In one Orkut entry, ‘Ashay Khopade, a graduate’ boasts of killing two dogs with his car “after 10-12 hard tries’’. During Diwali festivities last week, city veterinarians were reported to have treated many cases of dogs being scalded with firecracker injuries.
‘Meldon Rodrigues’ also recommends, “Put petrol on their bums..n watch them suffer’’.
After news spread of the hate-dog site, the members were bombarded with hate messages from pet lovers. ‘Rodrigues’ has apparently delinked himself from the online community. Moreover, the section “How to kill dogs” has been removed from the ‘I hate dogs’ community.

MUMBAI: Boastful entries detailing how members of an online community tortured dogs may not be fiction after all. A dog found in Andheri, Mumbai, on Wednesday had five air gun pellets in its body, one of them in its private parts.

That is close to what someone called ‘Meldon Rodrigues’, member of the Orkut community ‘I hate dogs’, had exhorted fellow members to do: ‘Shoot them with airgun/pellets in their testicles.’

TOI had reported about the online community, which listed ways to kill dogs. A few months ago, Karuna for Animals in Distress, an Andheri-based NGO, had found a five-year-old bitch suffering from mammarian gland cancer. The lump was so big that it would touch the ground and the black mongrel had to drag it around painfully. Karuna’s veterinarians operated on the animal, now called Rani, and removed the lump.

However, recently, the animal seemed in distress again, so on Wednesday the NGO again took it in for care.

“She didn’t seem alright so we thought that she may have a new tumour. We decided to take an X-ray and the outcome shocked us,” said veterinarian Shirish Deshpande. He said there were bullets lodged in Rani’s abdomen, vertebral column and even private parts.

Deshpande said Rani couldn’t be operated on to remove the bullets as the procedure would have risked her life. The bullets are lodged at various places and at a distance from each other.

“In a similar case earlier, we had tried to remove the bullet, but when we operated that dog we realised that the two-dimensional X-ray had misled us,” said Deshpande. Meanwhile, after TOI’s report, Rodrigues, who had also recommended to “put petrol on their bums…n watch them suffer” has apparently delinked himself from the online community.

Moreover, the section “How to kill dogs” has been removed from the ‘I hate Dogs’ community. A member signed on as ‘Ashay Khopade’, who had boasted of killing two dogs with his car “after 10-12 hard tries”, has kept his profile hidden.

The members are being bombarded with hate messages by pet lovers.

  1. Wow, I honestly don’t know how to even comment to this! These people are so sick and twisted. It has to be one of the sickest things I have ever read, coming in a close second behind the “artist” who tied up a stray dog in the corner and let it starve to death. Obviously these people are the lowest creatures on the planet, and need to be taught somehow! Maybe if they were locked up and treated the same way as they treated these poor animals they would learn a lesson!

  2. People who indulge in such harm to animals are barbarians and savages. I don’t know what pleasure they find in doing all this. Dogs have attacked humans and all that. I understand that it is not a pleasant experience since I have been bitten by dogs myself but still they need not be treated with such disdain. Is this how we treat the man’s best friend?
