Unfortunately, animal abuse is still an ongoing issue in our world. With international efforts to spread awareness, the numbers do decrease slightly, but still, every day we hear lots of heartbreaking stories about animals that are treated inhumanely and left to die painful deaths. However, it is always heartwarming to hear that some people are willing to put their own lives and interest on the line in order to save an animal that is in need, no matter how much effort is needed. These people put these poor animals first and let go of their own interest for the poor animals’ sake, and we appreciate their work too much, for they give those hopeless animals a second chance in life.
But sadly, we’re not always able to stop the disaster before it happens.This rescue is a specially heartbreaking one, more so because we have seen another case exactly like this one recently, where the criminal has also not yet been caught. When Princess was found, no one was prepared to see her severe case. Princess had her mouth tied tightly shut, which caused severe injuries in her jowls.
Princess was found in the 7000 block of W. Sunrise Boulevard on July 18th by police officers, who immediately took her to the vet. The vet confirmed that her infection could be life threatening, and that her mouth has been tied this way for 4 to 14 days, however, she is now in better health.
She was found with dog tags and her owner was tracked down. However, he stated that Princess ran away from home on July 12th.Until now, the police has found no leads as to who committed this hideous crime, but the investigation is still ongoing.
We hope the criminal is caught and served with the right punishment.
