A dog is said to be “barely hanging on” after a severe beating by a man who has been identified as 22-year-old Mark Hurd. The dog, a pit bull named “Chance,” was coughing up blood and limping when police arrived to the Everett, Massachusetts home on Friday.

According to Fox 25 News, when officers arrived, Hurd was dragging the dog down the driveway of a house on Floyd Street. “It’s extremely disappointing to see this type of violence perpetrated on an animal especially a domesticated pet,” Everett Police Chief Steven Mazzie said. “The Everett Police Department takes these cases seriously and would like to remind the public to report abuse of this type if they witness it.”

Chance was transported to an emergency veterinarian for care but his prognosis seems to be grim given the “barely hanging on” statement from the authorities. The dog’s alleged abuser is being held without bail – he is facing animal cruelty charges in addition to a probation violation.

    How people can be so cruel is beyond understanding. These kind of people have no soul, no ethics, no compassion and appear to be empty rotten shells. They will never be anything.

    Beat the shit out of the POS so that he’s just barely hanging on…then dump him on the side of the road. An eye for an eye….that’s what these MF deserve.

    Unfortunately police can’t beat this scum the way he did to this dog or else I am sure they would have inflicted more pain then this scum did to the dog, if that is possible. A waste of life that should not be breathing the same air we do. Leave him in jail to rot, no freedom ever.
