Kochi: A dog was allegedly sexually assaulted by a man with the incident coming to light after a video of the act surfaced on Whatsapp, an animal rights organisation claimed on Thursday.

Humane Society International/India in a release here said it would offer a reward of up to Rs 1,00,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person responsible for sexually assaulting the dog.

"While the exact location of the incident and whereabouts of the dog are not known, it is believed that it occurred in the state of Kerala since the perpetrators were talking in Malayalam," it said in a release.

The society has also complained to state Director General of Police asking for a thorough investigation in the incident to ensure that the perpetrators are punished.

DGP T P Senkumar told PTI that he has received a complaint in the matter.

The organisation, which has also sent the two-minute video to media, said it was widely circulated on Whatsapp and shows a helpless dog being forcefully held by a person and raped in a dilapidated building.

The dog is seen trying to free itself numerous times while it is being held by force and subjected to bestiality.

"The nature of this barbaric treatment clearly indicates that the dog has undergone severe physical and mental trauma," it said.

N G Jayasimha, Managing Director of HSI/India said, "It is unfathomable that an innocent, defenseless dog was subjected to bestiality. These incidents expose the violent nature of human beings and its high time we arrest such actions. Such perpetrators must be brought to book so we can set a precedence for future wrong doers."

He said the organisation was also working with the Animal Welfare Board of India and Kerala police to see that the persons involved were duly punished.
