A dog, whose face was bound in duct tape, was rescued from conditions described as “cruel” in Lexington, South Carolina, reported Monday’s WACH Fox News. The dog, a Doberman dubbed “Tank,” was rescued after a good Samaritan, who discovered the concerning situation, took photos and went to social media with a plea for help.

One person who saw the photos decided to take action – she and a friend rescued the dog and rushed him to the Lexington Animal Control for help.

Tank is recovering at the animal control agency and he is not currently available for rescue or adoption because he is considered to be “evidence” in the animal cruelty investigation.

Tank is not the first dog discovered with tape on his mouth – Caitlyn, a chocolate colored pit bull mix, gained national attention after she was discovered with tightly bound tape around her snout. Recently, her former owner, William Leonard Dodson, was sentenced to prison time after being found guilty of animal cruelty.

    More of this shit. When are authorities going to push for tougher animal cruelty laws….their job is never ending with this sick shit…..authorities have to start lobbying their mayors or whoever to get these monsters taken care of once and for all. This NEEDS TO STOP NOW.

    Every single day I start disliking people more and more. Anyone who is cruel to an animal is worthless in my opinion!!

      Humans are cruel barbaric animals by nature. A species that over breeds and uses all natural resources until depleted. That’s our nature. A few people can try and fight it but it is hopeless because you can’t change in a few decades what takes evolution thousands of years. One day the human race may actually be civilized, but that’s not anytime soon.

    Both North and South Carolina have an unusual Number of Really Seriously Abusive People living there !!!! What the hell is the problem … there NEEDS to BE GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION : is it generational , biological, geographical, social, racial not one specific race, familial, economic , criminal, !!! Something is out of sorts…. and It also appears that the JUDICAL, LEGAL , LAWENFORCEMENT AGENCIES , are not aggressively attempting to put a STOP to this shit as it continues and BECOMES MORE VIOLENT!!!

    South Carolina again, what is going on? The abuse is getting worse and worse around the country. Are people reading these stories and thinking “hey let’s go abuse a dog today”! It’s heartbreaking.

    Scumbags seem to breed like weeds down south! Most of the cruelty cases are coming from down south! I see a pattern here, its time that the southern part of this country gets a grip! You want to be abusive to something try each other leave the animals alone!
