An angry animal rights group in Malaysia is offering a reward to trace the yob who painted a stray dog orange and black so it resembled a tiger.
Persatuan Haiwan Malaysia, the Malaysia Animal Association, launched an appeal for information after the painted pooch was spotted walking down a street.
The group has now called on members of the public to come forward with any information which could help catch the culprit.
A spokesman for the group writing on Facebook said: 'Help Animal Malaysia identify the location and who this animal belongs to.
The dog was seen walking along a town street painted orange and black to look like a tiger.
It is not known if the local authorities are involved in trying to track down the culprit.
Laura Francis, on Facebook, said: 'The dog's face is sad, such a shame.'
Social media user 'Jessie Jye' said: 'The dog has to take a bath and have its coat shaved to get rid of all the chemicals. Sorry dog, remember the thug who did this to you.'
