According to the DNA report, the atrocity inflicted on the dogs goes past the ones burnt alive. The two goat-keepers had poisoned 70 dogs total. They then went on to set 50 of the 70 on fire. Crows, birds, and cats began feeding off of the carcasses in the field. In turn, these animals have also died. P Ashwath, an animal activist from Chennai, answered the distress call.

Four days later, the tragedy that left many disturbed came to light. A villager felt accountable enough to report the incident to an animal activist, P Aswath. Melmaruvathur police registered a case based on Aswath’s complaint and booked – Murali, Muthu, Murugadoss and Jeeva of the village in relation to the incident.

It was P Aswath and other volunteers who took it upon themselves to remove the dead dogs from the field. This had to be done to ensure that further infection and death would not continue. Ashwath further stated to DNA that, “Overnight a village that had close to 100 dogs, suddenly had 25.” A staggering drop in numbers that raised doubts.
