This is the moment a thug with a rifle shoots a defenceless poor husky three times at point blank range.
The disturbing scene took place in the village of Tenge in the Mangystau region of north-western Kazakhstan and was later uploaded to social media.
In the video, a husky can be seen sitting in a pen when one of the men points a rifle at it.

The man then opens fire on the dog three times as the pooch rolls over apparently dying.
One of the men can be heard giggling and a voice says the words repeat the word “husky”. Lights from what appear to be a siren can be seen in the video.
The video appeared on the Kazakh animal protection organisation INUCOBO’s social media page with the caption: “Warning! Graphic content! A husky is being shot. This video was sent to us by an unknown person specifying that the scene took place in Tenge village.
“Most probably the dog was accused of eating domestic animals. We are trying to find out the circumstances at the moment. Through this post we’re asking the witnesses and the owner of the dog to contact us and provide details on what happened. We have no data of the dog being alive”.
Netizen ‘stishka’ wrote: “These individuals should be shot the same way they’ve done to the dog!”
And ‘irinaterexina67’ wrote: “This is horrible! Those must be punished severely”.
It is unclear if a police investigation has been launched into the incident.
