Cruelty Continues: Donkey’s Ears Chopped Off in Rawalpindi Incident

According to the police, the suspect, who holds a position of influence, resorted to violence against the pregnant donkey for entering his farms.

Days after a distressing incident where a landlord amputated a camel, another act of animal cruelty occurred in Rawalpindi. In this case, a man named Arshad Mehmood reportedly chopped off the ears of a female donkey in the Rawat area.

According to the police, the suspect, who holds a position of influence, resorted to violence against the pregnant donkey for entering his farms. The incident was brought to light when Tanveer Hussain, the owner of the donkey, filed a complaint, leading to a case being registered against the suspect.

The First Information Report (FIR) detailed that the complainant had allowed his donkey to roam free to drink water after the wheat harvest at the farms. However, she strayed onto the agricultural land of the suspect. In response, Mehmood allegedly sliced both ears of the donkey.

The FIR also mentioned that Mehmood was a prominent figure in his area, and people were hesitant to speak out against him. In a video statement, Hussain vowed to advocate for justice on every platform to ensure his donkey receives the justice it deserves.
