PETA is offering up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who apparently mutilated a dog with a machete in a southern Texas town last month. The poor dog (renamed “Angel” by rescuers) “somehow escaped” from his family’s yard and was found the next morning suffering from deep lacerations on his head, face, back, and feet after apparently being hacked with a machete at least six times. Angel’s tail had been nearly severed and had to be amputated.
If you have any information on this case, please contact PETA’s Cruelty Investigations Department immediately. People who hurt animals are cowards who seek out “easy victims,” and they often take their issues out on humans too. And for the love of dogs, cats, and other animal companions, please ensure that your animals don’t end up like Angel—keep them safe indoors and never let them out of your sight when they are outside.
