Last week this shocking video was posted to Facebook by a man called Nghi Le Duc. It appears to show an animal rights group stealing a puppy from a homeless man. Le Duc wrote that they took the dog “violently, without pity” from the man. The video has now been viewed millions of times.
The name of the animal rights group is “Cause Animale Nord” and it would be fair to say that their actions have caused outrage, not least because this little dog may well have been the homeless man’s only comfort. However, they have fought back – stating that the dog was being used for begging and was even drugged.
More than 200,000 people have signed a petition to have the group formally investigated. Regardless of the motives, their style of vigilante intervention has certainly ruffled some feathers. Should they have taken the dog from the man or left this to the authorities to deal with? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
