Dog hurled from terrace gets adoption offers

The mongrel that fractured one of its legs after two college students flung her off the terrace in Chennai is getting several offers of adoption and care.

The slender light brown canine, christened Bhadra, has a steady stream of visitors after the callous treatment meted out to her. She is also posing for photo shoots for lensmen from various media organisations.

The students Gowtham Sudarshan and Ashish Paul, arrested for harming the dog, were released on bail.

Bhadra shot to fame a few days ago when a gruesome video of two students hurling her from the second floor of a house in Kundrathur in Chennai’s outskirts went viral on social media. A complaint from an animal rights activist led to the arrest of the students .

Activists found her alive in a ditch and rushed her to the veterinary hospital. “Many have come forward to care for her, pay her expenses and adopt her,” said Shravan Krishnan, one of the activists caring for the canine.

Refusing to take donations for the dog’s care, Krishnan said Bhadra will be fostered until she recovers completely. “Our only concern is to find her a perfect home,” he added.

Dr R Jayaprakash, currently treating Bhadra, said the dog has fractures on the spine and right leg. It would take at least three weeks to heal, he said.
