“First of all they got the dog to come near them by throwing it food, and then they looped a rope around its neck.”
Police officers were recently caught on video strangling a stray dog, allegedly to “save the paperwork”.
The officers involved are said to have killed the stray in front of locals in San Nicolas de los Garza, of Mexico. Several onlookers were allegedly laughing throughout the incident.
Police were said to have seen the dog while they were patrolling the town, and decided to kill it since it “didn’t appear to have an owner.”
Before you imagine that this might be embellished or fabricated, due to the extreme nature of the allegations, watch the video below.
The cops can be seen discussing the best way to get rid of the stray dog. That’s when a local man named Jocelin Batista decided to record the incident.
He mixed in with a small group that stood by laughing at the brutal scene.
“They were saying they didn’t want to have to fill in the paperwork explaining why they had used a bullet.
“First of all they got the dog to come near them by throwing it food, and then they looped a rope around its neck.
“They were then able to use the rope to strangle the dog, and you could see its head turning red.
“I was a bit surprised the police officers would kill a dog like that and if been anybody else I might have said something, but what can I do?
“These are police officers who must know what the law is.”
The actual moment of the animal’s strangling death has been edited to avoid distress to viewers.
Once the dog was apparently dead, officers threw it into the back of the police vehicle.
Jocelin’s, commenting on the scene, says: “Here we see what the police does when a dog attacks another dog.
“Here we can see they grab him with a rope.
“What an effective method they use!”
Jocelin later adds: “Don’t kill him, he’s a living being!”
Finally, he concludes, “This is subhuman. This is what the police do. Is this a solution? They want to make this place better by mistreating animals?”
