WITH VIDEO: Man raises animals at construction site – was allegedly beating a dog
The Police are investigating a man who was found to be raising animals at a construction site in Paola.
The Police have confirmed with TVM that at the construction site in Triq il-Palma, they found five dogs, some rabbits and birds which were in a bad condition.
It appears that residents who live nearby reported the case to the police after they could not bear to hear the dogs crying in distress any more; they were being kept tied up without any shelter from the rain or sun. The people who reported the case are alleging that the man was even beating one of the dogs who was heard whimpering.
Officials from Animal Welfare arrived on the scene and confiscated the animals who were then taken to the animal hospital in Ta’ Qali for treatment.
