Dog Stable After Being Dragged, Stabbed, Burned

DALLAS - A young pit bull is recovering from animal abuse, which included being dragged, stabbed and doused with chemicals. The dog was found bleeding and terrified near an apartment complex at Preston Road and Belt Line Road by two young men. The pair dropped off the shaking and terrified dog at the Operation Kindess shelter.

Authorities did not reveal the name of the apartment complex for fear of compromising their case.

Officials at the shelter named the dog Mercy and are crediting the two young men with saving the dog's life.

"It was horrifying," said Jonnie England with Operation Kindness. "One side looks like she'd been drug behind a car. The other side looks like multiple stab wounds."

Investigators are just beginning to look into the abuse but are hoping a person who they know witnessed the abuse will help them out.

This is "one of the worst cases of apparent abuse that we have seen," said England. "The vet thought that she had suffered chemical burns on her body and inside her ears," said England.

Mercy is now in stable condition, but not in the clear.

"The entire top layer of skin is just gone in so many places that the concern is infection setting into those wounds," England said.

The Dallas Police Deparment may soon become involved in investigating the case, which could take several weeks, NBC 5 reported.

What has to be screwed up in people's brains to provoke them to harm an innocent animal? It makes me sick.

I hate hearing about these things. This is the reason I had to stop watching Animal Cops, I used to get so mad watching how some people treat their animal :evil:

The only good thing about any of this is animal abuse in Texas is a felony, these assholes could get up to 10 years.

If more places had penalties like that, maybe there'd be less abuse . . . on the other hand, it didn't deter these terds . . .

I just saw the poor baby on the news. It is horrible, stab wounds & burn marks all over both sides of her body, she is limping & looks sore as hell but her tail was still wagging. What is even sadder........she would forgive & still love the people who did this to her.

The vet caring for her has said she does not have chemical burns, she was set on fire in several places. Her wounds are all up & down the sides of her body.

Sick bastards. I want to cry when I accidentally make my own dogs yelp (by stepping on a foot or tail, scruffing Loki if she's not wearing a collar, etc.)

OT, but thanks to Purple, I've got to have one of those eggs now. :P

Operationkindness.org and russmartin.com have more pictures of her, and links to donate $ for her hospital bills.

It takes a special kind of screwed up to do something like that to an innocent animal. Everytime I look at the picture, I have to go give my dogs a hug and promise that I will never let anything like this happen to them.
