The owner of an innocent 1-year-old dog decided he no longer wanted her. So he heartlessly poured cold water all over her body, outdoors in below-32-degree-temperature in Siberia, until she slowly and painfully froze into a solid block of ice.
In the excruciating moments before her death, the dog remained conscious and terrified, desperately waving one paw in a final plea for help. But it was too late. By the time animal activists arrived and were able to rush the poor dog to the vet, her tiny body had already shut down beyond repair.
"The eyes, I will never forget them," said one witness. "Did you ever see a man who wanted to live but who was already dying?"
Despite this sickeningly cruel act being caught on video, police have failed to take any action whatsoever. This is not acceptable -- the perpetrator must be held accountable for this sadistic act or else other animal abusers will get the message that they, too, can torture and kill without consequence.
Sign this petition to the Russian Ambassador to the U.S. letting him know that the world is now watching this horrifying case, and law enforcement must investigate and prosecute at once -- and enact a lifetime ban on this man from ever owning an animal again.
