This heartbreaking story happened in Iasi, the largest city in eastern Romania. Someone poured burning hot tar left over from a construction site onto four puppies and left them there to die. Under the sweltering sun, they were lying helpless on a dusty track caked in the black muck. Two of the puppies had tar covering 80 percent of their bodies.
Thankfully, the kind volunteers at The Sky Foundation for Animal Rights found the poor puppies before it was too late. They took the puppies in and rescued them. The puppies were sent to the animal clinic in critical condition. Veterinarians had to anesthetize the pups in order to remove the tar.
Fortunately, all four pups are doing well, and have returned to their playful little selves. After that, they will be given up for adoption after having recovered from the attack.
“We’re starting to think there’s someone in the city who does these kinds of cruel acts on purpose,” said a representative of a local rescue group, Sky Foundation for Animal Rights.
But what makes me even angrier about this story there was a police officer had said that he wasn’t going to waste his time investigating this crime.
The horrifying incident will reminder that people need to protect those who can’t defend themselves, whether they’re children, the elderly, or animals. Please share this story to help raise awareness about helping animals.
