Pintu recovering from brutal shooting, police case in process.
Pintu was the victim of a brutal shooting on 13th May 2014 in which two other peacefully sleeping community dogs were killed by a retired army major. Village boys rushed Pintu to Animal Aid where we immediately began treating him for shock. A pellet had gone through his back and out the other side and Pintu was unable to stand or even move. While Pintu’s life-saving treatment continued, we rushed to pick up the two killed dogs from the village to the police station to report the horrific crime.
Udaipur’s newspaper covered the brutality, spreading awareness to thousands that cruelty mustn’t be tolerated.
Pintu’s condition had greatly improved by the following day, but it was then that we found that he was paralyzed in his hind limbs from the shooting.
Animal Aid trustee Neha Singh Banyal assists police in their investigation of the place the dogs were shot.
Pintu has been showered with love ever since his arrival and we have high hopes that he will fully recover after several weeks of physical therapy. Today he received a special visit by a gentle young girl, Bhuvika, who is the granddaughter of Udaipur’s Maharana.
