Three Egyptian men were detained by police on Wednesday pending investigations into the brutal killing of a dog after a video of its slaying caused outrage on social media websites.
 
The dog was reportedly killed as part of a deal to drop charges against its owner, after it bit one of the three attackers.
 
The three suspects, aged 28, 29 and 32 – two of whom are butchers – are currently being investigated by police. 
 
The video showed the brown dog leashed to a poll before being struck by machetes and sticks by the three attackers until it died.
 
The incident took place in Qaliubeya govenrorate's Shubra district.
 
Egyptian animal rights advocacy groups condemned the incident and called for the punishment of the perpetrators.
 
According to Egypt's penal law, anyone who kills a pet on purpose a pet owned by someone else could face up to 6 months in jail.

Dogs and donkies
What I see: many dogs are kept very poorly and against their nature, they don't get the food they need and they cannot run as they need. They are just fixed down often day and night und have to rest in their own excrements and bark. This is the normal way to keep a dog which is as bad or worse than killing it. Where is the animal rights group to make en end to this? And I see: A donkey tied behind a wall having no water having nothing to eat. The next day it is still standing there in the full sun. The next day it is lying there breathing little and then no more breathing. Many people passing there, the car of the police parked there. I ask the police to help it, they smile and promis to get at least some water. it was shallow talk. As soon as it was dead they removed it because of the smell.

Corrupt regime and its supporters have problem with dog slaughter but no problem with slaughter of humans.
This thing tells you every thing about Egypt.

Humans can choose
The two issues are not linked. Humans choose to be savages. The dog had no choice. It was killed in the most cowardly way by people who have lost all sense of humanity, self respect and honour.
