Delivery boy beats up puppy with bamboo stick

Teja was delivering a food parcel at CoLive Hudson's apartment when a pack of stray dogs cornered him near the apartment gate and started barking at him. Angered by this, the delivery guy chased down the dogs and started beating them with a bamboo stick.

While all the dogs ran away after Teja started flogging them, a puppy took cover inside a gutter but was spotted by the miscreant, who bludgeoned it to death. The incident came into light after an animal welfare officer Harish KB working with an NGO, Jeevajyothi Foundation filed a complaint under IPC 428 (Mischief by killing or maiming animal) at Bandepalya police station.
