There is no fairy-tale ending for an abandoned and severely injured dog who was thrown away like trash in a “bin bag” that had been tied closed. The six-year-old mixed breed dog was discovered on Tuesday on Dorset Road, Saltley, Birmingham, reported BBC News.
The discarded and wounded dog was transported to a veterinarian for care, but his wounds, which were infested with maggots, proved to be too severe and he was humanely euthanized on Wednesday. RSPCA Inspector Mike Scargill stated:
Quite simply, this poor dog was left to die, in a bin bag, alone at the side of a road.
He was dumped like a piece rubbish.
It is not acceptable to treat an animal in this way and I am sure that many people will be sickened to hear that someone did this to an innocent dog.
This dog suffered a great deal unnecessarily, and we are keen to find out who did this.
