Animal rescue workers were violently assaulted Friday night while trying to catch and protect stray dogs in Delhi, India.
Ayesha Christina, the founder of animal welfare nonprofit organization Neighbourhood Woof, narrated her ordeal in a video that has gone viral. Take a look here …
Local residents attacked the volunteers while they were working — and unfortunately, Ayesha says this happens all the time.
In the video, you can see her bloody face and clothes as she expresses her frustration.
She even pointed her camera toward inattentive police officers and said, “This is how seriously we are taken.”
The police at Rani Bagh in Delhi said that a case has been registered against residents and further investigation is under process.
The cruelty and abuse that happens against dogs in India are terrible … and people like Ayesha Christina and her team are carrying a very heavy burden to be able to speak up for the voiceless.
We need more people like them … and we can’t allow violence like this to continue or it can possibly drive them out.
At Karmagawa, we’re using all of our media channels to get the message out and fight for a full investigation — so that Ayesha and her team no longer have to fear for their lives while rescuing animals ever again.
