A man has been arrested after a sick thug chopped off a defenceless puppy's legs and tail then left it for dead in a Turkish forest.
The one-month-old dog fought for its life for two days after walkers rushed it to the vets when they found it abandoned in undergrowth in the Sapanca district in Sakarya on Thursday.
The wounded animal died during surgery on Friday, sparking an outcry from animal lovers and momentarily pausing political debates across the country where citizens are preparing to go to the polls on June 24.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told an election rally in Istanbul on Sunday that police had detained a construction machine operator in relation to the puppy's death.
Footage has emerged showing a bear using a vuvuzela while being driven through the streets of Moscow.
Videos circulating online show the bear blowing the horn - made famous at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa - in the back of a jeep.
The creature is seen performing poses as onlookers take pictures on their phones.
It is thought to be the same animal which was made to perform before a Russian football match earlier this year.
Elia Allen, the director of animal welfare charity Peta, said of that incident: "In addition to being inhumane and utterly out of touch, using a bear as a captive servant to deliver a football is downright dangerous."

It stayed in the area for several hours before disappearing.
Swimmers were banned from entering the water for the entire afternoon.

Another moron thought it would be a great idea to film his friend kicking a cat then posting it on the internet. Smart move when the internet loves cat! At least he didn’t show his face when doing this disgusting act. Oh wait… his face is plain as day. The video is disturbing so fair warning.
