In a disturbing act of animal cruelty, a young pit bull puppy died after she was hit by a car running away from abusive teenagers who exploded a firecracker in front of the puppy’s face. According to the Metro, the heartbreaking attack occurred in Tlaquepaque, Mexico.
Croqueton GDL, a rescue organization in Guadalojara, rushed out to save the puppy. When they found her, they wrapped her in a blanket and carried her to a veterinarian where she died as a result of internal hemorrhaging after having gone into shock. Since then the photos have gone viral resulting in outrage as her heartbreaking story continues to circulate through social media. The announcement on the organization’s Facebook page told more of the story:
“For those who have just seen these images, this dog was a victim of abuse by a group of teenagers who shot a firework into her eye. Terrified she ran off in a blind panic and was run over.”
It is still unknown if authorities have been investigating the case.
