This just shows how many different kinds of abuse can actually exist. When you leave your pet is such a condition that they will do anything to escape from it, you are ABUSING your pet. In Cairo, it is quite common for people to leave their dogs in balcony, all alone in the heat. And such a thing is not just limited to Cairo.

PETA tries to warn people against doing such acts. Maybe the owners don’t know that their small acts can bring such torture upon their pets. That’s the reason why people should first be aware of how to treat their pets before adopting one.

Fortunately, the person capturing this video called the cops on the owner. He is now in jail. But that’s just one instance. We can’t expect to stop every cruel act in this manner.

Maybe it’s time to spread awareness far and wide and take a stand against such cruel owners.
