Graphic video has gone viral on social media showing the brutal and tragic killing of a medium-sized brown dog in Al-Haram, Giza.

In the video, the dog is seen helplessly surrounded by men carrying large knives and machetes. Moments later, the men start relentlessly  stabbing the dog as the blood covers the ground below him and his yelping echoes through the streets.

Despite surviving the stabbing, with large gaping wounds on his body, the dog is shortly killed after one man with a large metal pole crushes his body and skull against the pavement.

According to social media users, the owner of the dog had let him loose on eight thugs. To avoid prison time, the dog’s owner offered his apologies to the men, but the men demanded they are given the dog to kill. Despite refusing at first, the owner surrendered the dog, resulting in the tragic death.

Outraged, the Egyptian Society for Mercy to Animals (ESMA) has filed an official complaint urging those responsible for the brutal act to be brought to justice.

In solidarity with the dog, social media users have called for justice by raising awareness of the incident using the hashtag #كلب_شارع_الاهرام (#Dog_Of_Alahram_Street).
