This is not okay – in now way, shape or form should any living creature be subjected to such horrific neglect. On Thursday, Handme-Down Hounds uploaded several photos to Facebook of a badly neglected dog, with maggot-infested wounds, and a video showing just how bad this dog’s suffering has been.

The rescue group stated:

We need to take a minute to talk about the neglect that is happening in San Antonio, and all over this country’s southern states. THIS, is not ok. It is not ok to fight dogs, it is not ok to leave them for dead with wounds. It is NOT ok to see this dog on the streets and do nothing for weeks.

And words of gratitude to the animal shelter who took the injured dog in:

Thank you Kirby-Bexar Animal Facility for taking in this dog so it could be saved. We weren’t expecting this, but we made it work!
-Dr. Basten

The dog, dubbed “McJagger,” has already undergone surgery and he has a long road to recovery ahead of him. On Friday, the rescue group wrote:

 Our buddy needs daily bandage changes to regrow/stretch his skin to compensate for the dead tissue lost to maggots.

    t poor soul. The look in his eyes is very moving. How someone (even people who had seen him} could ignore his suffering is beyond sick. Had me Down Hounds came through. This rescue has deepest respect for caring.

    How could HUMANS allow this to happen to this dog. I am ashamed to be part of the human race when things like this are allowed to happen. God has a special place for people like this. Sorry I won’t get to see it happen.

    Hopefully there is a way to find the monsters responsible for this senseless torture of this precious soul. Please karma…..find the worthless use of skin that is responsible for this animals suffering and MAKE THEM PAY.

    I am a firm believer that those who treat animals so callously and cruelly deserve the exact same treatment they gave. These are not humans, they are soulless maggots who deserve NO kindness whatsoever. Apparently Texas among other southern states is of the mindset that animals deserve little to no consideration and their lack of punishment, compassion and care shows for animal abuse. Perfect example is the horrific condition of this dog.
