The incident took place in the city of Taraz in Kazakhstan. The black spaniel Barsik, just a year old, died in Shynali Risbibi’s arms. The heartless man stood in the background cleaning his rifle. He waited for the dog to die even as the girl cuddled the black spaniel. As the dog sinks to the pavement, the shooter picks up the corpse of the dog and walks away. The heartbroken girl walks helplessly back into her house. The whole incident was captured on camera, reports Daily Mail.
Shynali’s mother recounted the horrifying events of that day to the local media. She said her daughter was in tears as she rushed home. She was in no position to speak and was shaking. When Shynali’s parents realized what had happened outside they rushed out and confronted the shooter. After a big quarrel, the animal worker showed them the body lying in the van along with several other corpses.
The heartbroken girl was distraught and wouldn’t stop crying. Her parents did not tell her what they had seen. They have decided to adopt another black spaniel for the heartbroken girl.

Another animal control worker shot dead a pet dog after pointing the gun at a girl just nine years old, who had tried to shield the dog. As the little owner moved away in fear, the man killed the dog. The trigger-happy control workers are paid per kill and that explains their aggression.
Anuarbek Kaltaev, Animal Control head has said that the worker was reprimanded for his actions. Specialists from the unit will investigate the case and the worker, if found guilty, would be fired. But that is little consolation for the heartbroken girl.
