Dog tortured with shackles is rescued in China
China, September 14, 2012
A dog was rescued from a hideous torture in the city of Taiyuan in north China, where animal cruelty is not illegal, by a group of rescuers who have not gone fright when they saw to what he had been subjected for many years.
The dog was wearing a shackle on the neck, like a collar, enormously thick, so he could barely move his head. What’s worse is that apparently it was set since he was a puppy and as his size increased, the pressure was growing.
“As the dog grew, the necklace hanged him slowly, a little more each day,” said the rescuers, who assume that the animal was used to work in a field.
“We are struck before such cruelly. We are trying to find the culprits,” said a police spokesman who also explained that the animal is recovering in a shelter.
