Along with the images are information pointing out that the situation would have occurred this Easter holiday, in an establishment on Rua João Pessoa, in the Center, which also functions as a pet shop.
In the video, it is possible to see a woman hitting something several times, using an object, while the author of the images reports aggressions against the dog. The images are distant and unfocused, so it is not possible to identify whether the strikes are hitting the animal.
Upon seeing the situation, the author of the video shouts, the woman stops the beating, enters the animal into the establishment and is no longer seen. In another section, it is also possible to hear moans of animals from inside the place.
The report came into contact with the security forces, but neither the Military Police nor the Civil Police received complaints about the episode.
Our team talked to one of the responsible for the pet shop, who explained himself over the phone. The names will be preserved due to the lack of formal complaints of the case. According to him, the person who is seen in the image is a professional of the company and has already been warned for the care that needs to be taken in these situations, so it can appear to people from outside.
“Eventually, in the separation of animals that are attacking each other, you have to use a little more force, you have to do some control and those who look from outside think it gives the impression that they are simply mistreatment, but that is not what was done . What you can see in the image is that she goes out peacefully with a puppy walking on her lap, ”he said.
The person in charge of the establishment also said that the animal’s own guardian is aware of the situation, that he trusts the service of the place and knows that there was no type of injury or mistreatment.
The report attempted to contact the owners of the allegedly assaulted puppy, but did not get back until the publication of this article.
