A dog was taken under the wing of The Arrow Fund in Kentucky on Thursday. The female border collie, dubbed “Mira,” was allegedly the victim of horrific animal cruelty – a witness reported that Mira was being beaten with a board and contacted animal control.

The grievously wounded dog was taken to the Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter where she began having seizures. The Arrow Fund was contacted and Mira was sedated to ease her distress, and rushed to a BluePearl Veterinary Hospital in Louisville.

Tragically, there would be no happy resolution to this heartbreaking tale. On Friday, WLKY News reported that Mira died, despite veterinary intervention.

No word on possible charges against the individual who allegedly beat Mira with a board.

    I want to beat this bastard with a board for beating this dog. I fume with anger reading shit like this enough to torture the scumbag and make them in enough pain till they fucking die. This is about as plain as I can be. Just give me 10 minutes with MotherF&$kers like this and I am sure I will be the winner with my adrenaline pumping enough to kill animal abusers. Rot and die sick bastard who did this to this dog and all animal abusers.

    I cannot even believe that they are NOT thinking of any charges. The Asshole needs to be put in Prison.

      The punishment needs to fit the crime! If law enforcement is not looking for whoever did this they should be put in prison for essentially abetting this horrific atrocity!

    She hasn’t even been important enough for someone to comment on her.. Such a sad outcome for a little animal that did n’t deserve being treated in such a horrific way… She is at least at peace now and doesn’t have to endure more suffering….and pain… Bless her little soul…

    I Hope whoever done this to this Sweet Dog gets Found and brought to Justice. Not a slap on the Hands either. Karma says to send him to Jail for a very long Time. Makes me Sad to Hear about this. I hope you ROT in PRISON you SOB.

    Pease make sure the human garbage that
    did this to this poor innocent precious sweetheart is charged with the worst type
    of animal cruelty possible!!!! The human race
    is getting so sick????????????????????

    So, where is this witness who apparently saw this poor animal getting beat? Why did they NOT try stop it? Or did they? What is the whole story behind that? Whoever writes these posts about animal abuse ALWAYS gives the readers only so much and as far as I’m concerned, animal abuse is too big of an important issue to play with peoples heads! Every single day I see more and more of these horrific posts on animal abuse and everyday it destroys me little by little. It is to the point where I hate being part of the human race!! As far as I can see, the only way to slow this evil down is to make the consequences so harsh and intense that people will fear getting fronted out on their f**ked up behavior that they will stop all together, or never start with abusing (torturing) animals! Start to take better care of them. In case nobody ever mentioned this but, animals, just like children are EVERYBODY’S BUSINESS!!!! We gotta protect the ONLY innocents of this world! So start NOW!
