Target: Khamis Al-Mazeina, Dubai Police Chief
Goal: Investigate the murder of a kitten thrown from a moving taxi.
A kitten was killed after being thrown from the window of a moving taxi. A witness, Nisansala, says she was driving when suddenly a taxi swerved over and two men in the backseat rolled the window down and hurled the tiny kitten into the road. “I could see the kitten flying,” Nisansala said. “It landed and bumped a few times, and then I could see it trying to lift it’s head.”
Nisansala says she went back and got the cat, but the poor animal, whose mouth was frothing with blood, died in her lap on the way to the vet. The veterinarian told outlets that the poor kitten had no heartbeat or respiratory activity, so there was nothing they could do to help. When she tried filing a report, police reportedly said without the taxi number plate, CCTV footage or another witness, they couldn’t investigate.
It seems the police didn’t even try to help this poor kitten. The least they could do is ask that any other witnesses come forward. Nisansala, and the children who were in the car with her, must have been heartbroken to witness this senseless act of gory animal murder. Demand that the police make an effort to find out who killed this tiny animal and bring them to justice.
Dear Chief Al-Mazeina,
A woman saw two men throw a kitten from a moving taxi. She took the injured animal to the vet, but it died in her lap en route.
When she attempted to file a report, the witness says police turned her away saying they couldn’t investigate. If this is true, it would seem the police don’t care about cruelty to animals. Animal abusers are known for their tendency to also abuse humans, even children. We demand that an effort be made to find the dangerous people who did this and bring them to justice before more creatures are harmed.
