A stray male dog found roaming in the area of Chatsworth, South Africa was rescued on Monday with a clamp drilled through his hind leg, reports the South Coast Sun.
According to the Amanzimtoti SPCA, the egregious case of animal cruelty even surprised the rescue staff as to the viciousness of the deed:
“It blows my mind – just when I think I’ve seen all the cruelty humans can inflict on our precious animals, I encounter a new one,” stated the rescue organization’s manager Tracey Girling.
Girling rushed the dog to the team’s local veterinarian who stated the clamp had been drilled into the dog’s leg within the last 24 to 48 hours. The dog could not put any weight on that leg. Described as a great dog, it is hoped after he recuperates that he can find a loving, safe home.
Chaining dogs in the yard is against the law. Anyone with information as to the identity of the dog or his owner is asked to contact the SPCA office at 031.904.2424/5.
