Every day, thousands of animals are abandoned by their owners. Whether they are cats, dogs, or any other pet, the reasons vary, but still, abandoning a pet no matter for what reasons is the cruelest act anyone could commit. And not all owners abandon animals at the shelters, sometimes they just leave them in the middle of nowhere or throw them outside like garbage.
This story, however, sheds the light on a bigger disaster that is always forgotten by most of us. This dog was found abandoned in the trash and later, when rescuers arrived, they discovered through the nature of her injuries the shocking truth about her past life.
It was a quiet and cold Sunday afternoon in Detroit when a family heard some strange noises of crying and whimpering outside their home. When they went out to investigate, what they found shocked them. They found a pit bull mix dog in the trash can outside of their house. She was obviously abandoned, cold, starving, and had several wounds in her body. The dog was trying her best to keep warm, but she couldn’t help but cry out for help. The family immediately contacted the Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue, who was finally able to make it to the scene 24 hours later. The dog was still there, and as you can see in the video, she was in a very weak and dangerous condition. The crew members were able to carry her away easily as she was too weak to fight back, and she knew these good people were there to help her.
When the crew members saw her injuries, they immediately figured out that she was used as a “bait dog” in an illegal activity known as dog fighting, and dumped for being too weak to continue. Dog fighting is a horrible thing that happens more often than we know, and that needs more police attention, in order to bring all those helpless dogs back to safety.
