Federal police forces rescued a dog from its aggressive owner.
A dog has become the victim of an unbelievable act. A man (40) is said to have abused the four-legged friend on Sunday evening (August 7) in front of Gelsenkirchen Central Station.
A witness alerted the federal police, obviously shocked by the brutality towards an animal.
NRW train station: dog abused in Gelsenkirchen, woman calls federal police
At around 7.45 p.m., the travelers turned on the Federal Police in Gelsenkirchen Central Station. The woman stated that an obviously heavily intoxicated man had abused his dog, a husky, in front of the main train station.
Because the dog disobeyed him, the aggressive master is said to have smashed a beer bottle on his animal’s head.
The emergency services stopped the 40-year-old man in the main station and checked him. They found that the man known to the police was heavily under the influence of alcohol and did not have his dog under control. A breath alcohol test at the police station showed that the dog owner was heavily intoxicated with three per thousand.
The federal police alerted the fire brigade of the city of Gelsenkirchen. The rescue workers examined the dog and initially brought the apparently uninjured dog to an animal shelter. The Federal Police initiated investigations against the 40-year-old for violating the Animal Welfare Act. (ir)
