What happened:

After a pet dog was shot dead, police in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa filed the first-ever case of theriocide on Jan 24. The dog was reportedly guarding its owner, Shah Rehman, who was playing in the fields, when two armed men, Shoaib and Tahir, opened fire on the dog.

Details:

The animal was in agony after being shot, according to the FIR, and witnesses did nothing to help it. “I don’t have enmity against anyone.” “The accused killed the dog for amusement,” Rehman, son of Saif ur Rehman, stated as he was enjoying himself in the field when the incident occurred three days ago. According to the report filed at Matni Police Station, the accused managed to flee the scene because they were residents of Darra Adam Khel, a sub-division of Kohat District in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.

“Killing birds and other animals is prohibited,” said Abbas Sangeen, a senior counsel at the Peshawar High Court, in an interview with The Express Tribune. According to him, such activities are punishable by three to five years in prison and a fine under section 429 of the Pakistan Penal Code.
