It’s shocking and heartbreaking; I’ve never seen such a horrible thing in my entire life, there are heartless people living in this world, hurting animals so badly, their sick minds destroying those pure souls. This story has two faces, and the truth is lost between them. SNARR, The Special Needs Animal Rescue & Rehabilitation center in Louisiana, posted the horrible photos of Zeus on their official Facebook page, saying that in Egypt, someone had thrown acid on a dog named Zeus and they are doing their best to bring this dog to their location in Louisiana to help him. As they said, Zeus the dog will be flying on Sunday, to get the surgeries and the medical care he needs. Zeus’s pictures are very heartbreaking. Those are the pictures that SNARR had posted lately.
On the other side, ESMA, Egyptian Society for Mercy to Animals, said that Zues was found in the desert, and their vet confirmed that what’s on his back are not injuries that could be caused by acid. They found Zues with old injuries that have become infected, mostly caused by dogs that attacked him, and they don’t think that it is caused by a human. They had his skin removed, and now people are donating for him to complete the medical care. Those pictures are of Zues before his surgery.
Thousands of horrible animal abuse accidents happen every day in Egypt, animals there are living under horrible circumstances. There are many animal shelters in Egypt, but they don’t have enough medical or financial resources, which makes it hard to save severe cases. Any activity for animals’ rescuing is not supported by the Egyptian government. Also, there aren’t any laws in Egypt’s constitution protecting animals or penalizing any animal abuser.
Whatever the truth was, what really is important is that he gets the treatments he needs. All we are wishing for Zeus is that his pain will fade, and we hope soon to see his pictures after the medical treatments, in a new safe home, with a loving owner. We will keep you updated.
