Social media users in Egypt have been buzzing over a graphic video showing the brutal killing of a dog, which was stabbed and beaten by a metal pole by a group of men.

A viral video showed the horrific killing of a helpless medium-sized dog as it was relentlessly hit by knives and sharp blades in al-Ahram street, in Cairo’s Shubra district.

The dog can be seen tied to a light pole as the men beat stab it several times in an apparent demonstration of brutality.

Shedding a lot of blood, the floor beneath the wounded dog was stained.

One of the men later kills the dog by slamming his body and head against the pavement using a large metal pole.

The whole incident occurred in front of the dog’s owner, who reportedly had an earlier argument with the men and had let the dog loose on them.

The men later filed a lawsuit against the dog owner, according to witnesses. As a result, the owner was sentenced to a year in prison.

To escape the jail term, the dog’s owner offered his apologies to the men, but they demanded the dog to be given to them to kill.

The owner later surrendered the dog after his negotiations failed.

Furious Egyptians took to social media to express their grief over the incident, which reportedly took place this week.
