Dog set on fire, turtle eaten

The police have arrested eleven people over cruelty to animals at two separate locations yesterday.

A woman was arrested in Galle for pouring kerosene oil on a dog and setting the dog on fire.

The woman had killed the stray animal when it came into her house.

A foreigner who attempted to save the dog had lodged a complaint with the police over the incident.

Meanwhile ten people were arrested in Alawathugoda yesterday for stealing, killing and then eating a turtle.
