A man from Noida, India, is facing serious public wrath after he viciously beat up his Labrador puppy, Buddy, for pooping on the floor.
The incident was captured on camera by a neighbor who couldn’t stop the man, Rishabh Mehra, from hurling atrocities on the helpless puppy.
In the video, Rishabh is seen hitting Buddy with a belt and slamming him on the floor multiple times while the pup lets out the most gut-wrenching yelps.

The neighbor alerted the local animal activists about the situation, and they immediately arrived at Rishabh’s residence to rescue Buddy.
When confronted by the activists, the man boldly claimed that he was merely trying to “discipline” his pet.
Another disturbing fact was that the man’s wife was apathetically witnessing Buddy’s ordeal the whole time, but never bothered to help him.

Buddy has been left with a fragmented and shattered femur, injuries on his abdomen and genital areas, and a slew of nerve issues. The friendly 6-month-old puppy is in a lot of pain and cannot even stand on his own.
The vet team at “Canine & Feline Critical Care Unit” believes that Buddy will require multiple surgeries and months of rehab and therapy before he can walk again.
While the activists managed to get Rishabh arrested, the man was able to go scot free by paying off meager fines that didn’t even add up to a dollar. He allegedly tried to bribe the cops as well.
The frustrated animal lovers have now launched a petition to get the man fired from the reputed IT firm he works at as a form of social justice. Thousands of citizens have already supported the cause.
