After the police arrived, Meda's owners said his genitals were bleeding and swollen. After the family members came together, the owner then called the police.

In another horrible incident we had reported earlier, a dog died of horrific injuries after it was gang-raped and stabbed over 30 times. The incident occurred on the streets of Bogota, Columbia on November 1 with a video showing the dog struggling to move. Concerned passersby placed a sack under her bleeding body. She was soon rescued and taken to the vets to receive emergency treatment Daily Star reports. The dog had recently delivered a litter of puppies when the horrible incident took place. Marta Buitrago took the dog to the vet and spoke to El Tiempo, a local newspaper, stating that the dog appeared injured and very weak.
Another woman named, Liliana Guerrero, shared pictures and videos on Facebook and said the dog "was stabbed many times and sexually abused by several people." She wrote that the dog resisted and was stabbed as a result. "Because she wouldn’t allow it, they stabbed her," and said she died of the injuries. "They destroyed her genitals, stabbed her almost 30 times, punched her, and caused other superficial injuries," Guerrero continued. "The dog could not cope with the amount of pain." Guerrero also stated that she was unable to convey the "enormous sadness and helplessness I feel" after the dog's horrific death. The unnamed dog isn't the only one to die of such a horrific case of bestiality. The incident occurred in the municipality of Quinchia but it is unclear if the authorities investigated the matter.
