The Greater Good Foundation-Fiji in Lovu Lautoka is call­ing on Fijians to stop being cruel to animals.

This came to light when one of the foundation’s dogs was found to have had a deep cut on his back.

Foundation’s Volunteer Maleeka Buksh said the dog namely Ranger went missing three days ago and was found yesterday morn­ing with the injury.

She said the cut was so deep it would not have healed and the dog was eu­thanised (put an animal to death humanely).

She said some individuals in Fiji have been cruel to dogs and end up throwing stones or causing injury.

She said dogs like other animals must be respected as they are also God’s crea­tion.

The Foundation is calling on anyone who knows the whereabouts of the person who committed the offence and caused the injury to Ranger.

Under the Crimes Decree of 2009 the maximum pris­on sentence for an Act of Animal Cruelty is five years imprisonment.

The Foundation will give a reward of $750 to anyone with information leading to the arrest of the person who injured Ranger. Con­tact: 8640200.
