Target: Mina Abdullha Police Chief
Goal: Prosecute the Eastern Securities of Kuwait employee who allegedly killed 24 dogs.
Twenty-four dogs were reportedly slaughtered by employees at the Eastern Securities of Kuwait (ESK), an American company based in Kuwait. The company was contracted by the Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) to provide security work, which including working with K9 units. After the security company found out their upcoming contract had been revoked, they retaliated by killing 24 of the K9 units, leaving 91 other dogs in their facilities.
The senseless murder was reported on Instagram by the Kuwait Animal Rescue Unit. The post reported that a lawyer and rescuer had already filed a complaint with the local police, but that there were still 91 other dogs at the facility that need rescuing. The animal rescue also reports that the dogs are being severely abused and made to work for 24 hours without any rest and that employees of the security company would not speak up against the inhumane action as they were also being abused by their employers.
Since the incident, an anonymous employee of the ESK has told the Arab Times that the dogs were suffering in the condition they were in and were going to set to be put down anyway, but one employee took initiative and killed them all in one group. It has been reported that said employee has been fired, but this does not go far enough. A massacre of this magnitude warrants much more than being fired. The employee responsible should be prosecuted for his crimes immediately.
To let someone who murdered 24 innocent dogs simply walk away without so much as a slap on the wrist sets a dangerous precedent for animal abusers everywhere. If the Kuwait government allows these animals to die in vain and choose not to prosecute the perpetrator, then they are effectively saying to animal abusers all over Kuwait (and the world) that they will not be prosecuted if they want to kill helpless animals. This injustice can not stand any longer. Demand that actions be taken to prosecute this murderer.
Dear Mina Abdullha Police Chief,
We know that you are already investigating the massacre that reportedly occurred at the Eastern Securities of Kuwait facility, but it is time that you prosecute the man who allegedly murdered those poor animals. Allowing him to walk free tells animal abusers everywhere that no harm will come to them if they choose to abuse helpless animals.
Prosecuting this man will send a clear message to everyone in Kuwait who may feel the need to do harm to animals that if they do so, they will be punished accordingly. Now more than ever, it is crucial that we come down on animal abusers with the full force of the law. Too many cases of animal abuse have ended in the perpetrator walking free and it is time to put and end to that.
There is clear cut evidence that this man, who remains unidentified thanks to the “protection” of ESK, murdered two dozen dogs and needs to be punished. Take a stand and send a message to animal abusers everywhere that their actions will not be tolerated and help create a safer world for animals to live in. Arrest and prosecute the man who murdered these defenseless animals.
