A pet dog that was attacked with a machete by an unidentified individual had been treated and discharged yesterday from the Kurunegala Veterinary Hospital after a four-hour surgery.
The dog sustained severe injuries last Tuesday in Kuliyapitiya and the sadistic attack went viral on social media platforms.
The dog’s owner, Nilantha Ruwan Sampath, said his pet underwent urgent treatment at the Kurunegala Veterinary Hospital and that the machete lodged in the animal’s skull was surgically removed. He said the heartless attacker had not been identified yet and that he hoped to lodge a complaint with the police in this regard.
