“Obviously it doesn’t take a genius to understand that the person who left this poor dog; did so because they couldn’t be bothered with it any more. Obviously never heard of animal groups that would have taken it in. They are merely cold hearted bastards; using up oxygen intended for decent people. Please contact police if you have any information!”
The 6- to 8-month-old Boxer mix was emaciated and cruelly tied to a tree with a garden hose. He was deliberately left there to die.
Wetrich heard a faint bark coming from the woods. She followed the noise and found the innocent dog.
“I can’t just leave a living creature to die like that,” Wetrich told Fox News.
According to authorities, the dog that now goes by name Lucky was probably abandoned in the forest for at least a week prior to being found. Local rescue group, Apollo Rescue, saved Lucky as soon as Wetrich reported the incident.
Lucky was tied with a heavy garden hose and there was no food or water left for him. Rescuers say that he was close to organ failure but luckily he was found in time to save his life.
Finding whoever abandoned Lucky in the woods and charging the person(s) with animal cruelty will be a difficult task. The dog was left in a field with no address and there are no witnesses to this event.
Authorities encourage anyone with information to this crime to come forward.
