On Sunday 27 January 2013, Whiskey was being walked by a friend of his owner along the Corniche of Beirut. According to Whisky’s owner, Bassem, they would regularly walk along this busy part of Beirut, with Whiskey playing with people and enjoying one of the few areas of public space for dog owners to walk with their dogs.

Around 9AM, Bassem received a phone call from his friend who had volunteered to take Whiskey for a walk as Bassem was suffering from an injured leg. His friend said that Whiskey has been shot 12 times and killed by a man who claimed that Whiskey had attacked his daughter. Whiskey regularly walked along this busy route and did not have a history of aggressive behaivor. Rather he was remembered to be “very peaceful and lovely he used to play with everyone and smile for everyone”.

As the law protecting Aniaml Rights is still waiting to be implemented, the shooter may face minimal, if not zero, punishment.

Sign this petition if you think that Lebanon should be safe for people to walk along their beautiful seaside, without fear that they, their families and their pets will be randomly killed and shot!
