Raveena offers reward to nab dog attackers
In the past one month, four stray dogs were found with their eyes gouged out in the city’s western suburbs. However, authorities are yet to make any arrests in connection with the attacks. Concerned about the poor follow-up, Bollywood actor Raveena Tandon Thadani joined PETA in offering Rs 50,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who are responsible for this violent crime. “Animal abusers are cowards,’’ says Raveena. “They vent their anger on the most defenceless beings available to them. This is a completely sadistic and cruel act and the perpetrators of this crime need to be found and punished. If this is being done by adults, the harshest of punishments should be meted out to them. And if it is being done by juveniles, then they need urgent psychiatric help as they will grow up to be a menace to society,’’ she added. “I believe other animals in the area and even human beings are in danger as long as those who are responsible for this crime are at large,’’ she said, urging residents not to leave their pets unattended. Earlier, the actor had also starred in an ad for PETA in which the face of a dog was superimposed over her eyes with the tagline “Compassionate Children Lead to Compassionate Adults”.
