dog’s mouth tied, inside sack, tied hanging behind SUV as SUV drives around city! jail driver of BDK 617 !
why was this done to the dog? what possible reason could there be for this?
was the owner of the vehicle doing this because the dog cannot fit inside the SUV? and what was their plan for this dog?
to us, it looked like the owner of the SUV is meaning to dispose of the dog. either to kill the dog or to sell the dog (the location being baguio). you can see malice on the part of the SUV owner or driver – the dog’s mouth was tied obviously to prevent the dog from barking or crying as it suffers during the travel. or tp prevent the dog from biting those who did this to the dog. we also suppose this dog’s paws must have been tied completely from preventing it from running away.
whatever reasons the SUV owner or driver have, this is plain and simple cruelty to the dog. the driver of this vehicle and whoever decided to do this to the dog should be punished and jailed. at minimum, they should be allowed to experience the same thing the dog did – tie the mouth of the owner and driver of the SUV, tie their hands and feet, place them inside a sack and hang them behind the SUV and the SUV to travel the same distance it did for the dog.
Dog tied to SUV causes outrage online; animal rights group tracks down car’s owner
MANILA, Philippines – A photograph of a dog in a sack and tied to the rear of an SUV spread virally on the Internet Monday, spurring an animal rights group to track down the owner of the vehicle.
Anna Cabrera, executive director of the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) told InterAksyon that they are already on their way to the address of the SUV’s owner.
Cabrera, who with the help of some media people, was able to get information from the Land Transportation Office about the details of the black 1988 Nissan Patrol Safari with plate number BDK 617.
“We are heading there already,” Cabrera said. “We want to talk to the driver and find out what happened to the dog.”
According to Cabrera, the SUV is registered to a certain Apollo International Cagayan Trading with address at 27 Dalahican St. Damar Village in Quezon City.
Based on InterAksyon’s research, the said corporation is engaged in the import of used vehicles. In 2008, the company was involved in an alleged smuggling activity. The officials of Apollo have vehemently denied this.
Cabrera said the photo was taken on Sunday by a person who saw it at around 4 p.m. It has since spread like wildfire through social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.

SANTA ANA, Cagayan, Philippines ? The car dealers at the center of a brewing smuggling controversy have challenged the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, commonly called Amcham, to produce solid evidence to prove its allegations that the used car business at the Cagayan Economic Zone at Port Irene was being used as front for smuggling activities.
Peter Geroue, president and chief executive officer of Apollo International Trading Corp., said the charges were ?unfair? and that Amcham was making accusations based on mere hearsay.
