Vietnam: Woman Hacks Off Her Dog’s Leg
Mina the dog is a victim of an owner with no understanding of training or owning dogs. Despite strong efforts to have Mina internationally adopted, she will be returned to the woman who owns her. I find the facts of the story horrifying and totally unacceptable. It is the owner’s responsibility that Mina was untrained and unruly, and not the dog’s fault.
Three year old Mina was allowed to roam around, annoy the neighbors and chase their chickens and ducks. When neighbors would run at Mina for killing their birds, she started biting some of them. Furious neighbors told her owner they would kill Mina if they got hold of her.
To stop Mina biting people and to stop neighbors threatening to slash her with a knife or beat her to death for killing their birds, Mina’s owner decided the next day she would cut her dog’s leg off. [See video below. ]
There are no animal protection laws in Vietnam so nothing governs this type of calculated brutality, as long as you own the animal. Under no circumstances should aggressive violence be used on any animal. If the dog was acting badly perhaps the woman should have cut her own leg off as a punishment to herself for irresponsible ownership.
Today Mina had surgery on her hacked off leg. She’ll be crippled for the rest of her life. Hacking off the dog’s leg was a cruel calculated act of brutality by a woman who in my opinion, should not be rewarded by having the dog returned to her.
The woman may have put a bandage on the dog’s hacked leg, but Mina suffered for three days without pain relief. Some local people are saying Mina should be returned to her owner ‘because the owner loves the dog, otherwise she wouldn’t still be alive.’
Video Warning: Graphic Content:
I hope someone will take the time to educate Mina’s owner about the correct way to look after a dog; to treat it with love and respect, as a “someone” and not a ‘something.’
Fight Dog Meat will continue to expose animal issues inside Vietnam and call for animal protection laws to be implemented and enforced.
Please Note: Mina’s Vietnamese supporter Joey Thi did not receive any money from FDM, nor did she ever ask for money from FDM.

To help Vietnamese animals, please help this Vietnamese vet get the extra training she cannot receive in Vietnam. A small $2 will help her achieve this goal.
