Pregnant Donkey Fatally Shot After Owner Cuts Tree in Rawalpindi

In Rawalpindi, a disturbing incident of animal cruelty has sparked outrage as influential individuals reportedly retaliated against a local farmer by killing his pregnant donkey. The tragic event unfolded in Makhyal Chakri, where the perpetrators callously shot the defenseless animal. Reports indicate that the donkey, which was three months pregnant, met its untimely demise following a dispute over the farmer’s decision to cut down a tree on their property. This brutal act has resulted in a case being filed against 11 suspects at the Chakri police station, initiated by the devastated owner of the donkey.

This heart-wrenching incident adds to a recent pattern of animal abuse cases emerging from Rawalpindi. Just last month, another case shocked the community when a donkey in the Saggri area had its ears mutilated. Despite timely evidence provided by Tanveer, the donkey’s owner who also operates a farm and shop in Rawalpindi, police action was reportedly delayed by two weeks. Tanveer had diligently gathered video recordings implicating a suspect residing in Arshad Mahmood’s house, yet justice was slow to unfold for the injured animal.

The gravity of these incidents highlights a troubling trend of violence against animals in the region, where perpetrators often act with impunity. Such acts not only inflict unnecessary suffering on innocent creatures but also underscore gaps in law enforcement’s response to animal welfare issues. Local advocates and concerned citizens are increasingly calling for stricter enforcement of animal protection laws and swifter justice for perpetrators of such heinous acts.

Efforts to address these atrocities are critical to ensuring the safety and humane treatment of animals across Rawalpindi and beyond. Community awareness and advocacy play pivotal roles in fostering a culture of compassion and respect for all living beings, urging authorities to take decisive action against animal cruelty and uphold justice for victims like the slain pregnant donkey and others affected by similar atrocities.
