Remember Ammu, the stray dog from Bengaluru who had to witness her eight new-born puppies being killed?
The poor creature has died.
The stray dog, who had been in the care of a family since the horrific incident in March, died of canine distemper, a serious viral disease on Friday.
Ammu was taken to a veterinary hospital by a volunteer but couldn’t be saved.
“She was brought to Sarvodaya Sevabhavi Samstha on Wednesday when a volunteer, Nitin Bhatia, noticed that she showed symptoms of canine distemper”
The New Indian Express quoting Vinay Moray, who runs Sarvodaya Sevabhavi Samstha an NGO reported.
Ammu, a female stray dog that grew up among the residents of Lane No. 3, Krishnanagar, off Tumkur Road in Bengaluru, was in the news in March after her eight puppies were killed by a woman resident of the colony.
The woman, the wife of an ex-army officer did the heinous act “to teach a lesson” to the dog; who was littering her premises.
The news of the dog, searching for its pups even five days after they were killed, had caused massive outrage.
The woman who was arrested on charges of animal cruelty was granted bail days later.
