31 JULY 2012 - SPCA received a report of a puppy cruelly thrown down a manhole at Persiaran Bistari, Cyberjaya. The incident happened 2-3 weeks ago, and the perpetrator is thought to be a student at MMU, Cyberjaya. He was supposed to be dog-sitting while the owner was away for one month, but when the owner returned he was told his puppy had 'disappeared'. Through friends, the owner found a video of his puppy being forced down a manhole by two people, and promptly contacted SPCA for advice.
Upon a visit by SPCA and the police yesterday, there were no signs of the puppy but it is highly likely the puppy had drowned, suffocated, suffered broken limbs or died of starvation as there is no way to escape from the 6ft-10ft manhole. SPCA has assisted the owner in making a police report, and will pursue justice for this puppy and further action against the perpetrators with the Dept of Veterinary Services.
