SPCA Singapore has put up an appeal on Facebook for information pertaining to a horrific puppy abuse video that is being circulated on WhatsApp.
According to SPCA Singapore's post, the incident may not have happened in Singapore but it is "urgently appealing for credible information to seek justice for the puppy".The video allegedly showed a puppy having its eyes burned and its limbs broken, while its mouth was tied shut.
SPCA Singapore strongly discouraged circulating the video as there are syndicates that profit from animal torture films, including some that are produced for sexual fetish.
