Bengaluru: Police in Bengaluru have registered a case against a woman who allegedly bashed eight newborn puppies against a boulder to teach their mother a lesson, who reportedly gave birth to the puppies in a drain under her gate.
According to a report in Bangalore Mirror, Ponnamma, wife of an ex-honorary flight lieutenant, mercilessly flung the puppies onto the boulders in Bengaluru’s Krishnanagar area on March 15. Seven puppies died on the day, one died the next.
The outraged neighbours, mostly ex-servicemen, buried the puppies and registered a complaint against Ponnamma.
Meanwhile, the female stray dog, four-year-old Ammu, dug up the graves and took out her dead puppies to feed them. Five days later, she still roams around the site where her pups were killed.
Police have booked Ponnamma for cruelty towards animals under various sections. If found guilty, she could end up in jail for up to five years. The report, quoting neighbours, says that she is remorseless.
