Lifeless dog found chained in the woods

‘Lifeless’ dog found chained in the woods – search is on for the owner

Last weekend, a lifeless dog was found chained in the woods near a home in Laurens County, South Carolina. The dog, dubbed Courage, was so weak that he was unable to stand.

The cruel situation

On Sept. 9, the Heart of LAC recounted what had taken place before the dog was discovered:

Late last night, as most of us were getting ready for bed, a Laurens Animal Control Officer responded to a call. When he arrived he found a burned out house, and three dogs chained out front. As he was checking out those dogs, he heard something else…a faint cry from deep in the woods behind the house.

Following the sounds, about a half mile into the woods, he found this dog. Chained with a logging chain, and not able to stand, the Animal Control officer picked his nearly lifeless body up, and carried him a half mile back to his truck.

Saving Courage

The officer transported the emaciated dog to a veterinarian for care.

The group wrote:

Although he was weak, he wagged his tail. He ate some rotisserie chicken. He gulped down some medicine. He knew he was safe.

This dog has been named Courage. He weighs 38 lbs, but should be about 65 lbs. He was chained up and not fed for weeks, but he willed himself to survive.

Donations

DONATIONS: Clinton Animal Hospital at 864 833 2487 and let staff know that the donation is for Courage’s medical care.

Search for the abuser

As reported by WYFF News, deputies have identified Michael Christopher Yeargin, of Foothills Trail in Gray Court, as Courage’s owner. Anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts is asked to call the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office at 864-984-4967 or anonymously at 864-68-CRIME.

    I pray and hope with all my heart that is so call evil human by the name of Michael Christopher is found and prosecuted to the fullest, I rather see someone beat the shit out of him. I pray he has no peace in his heart. Mind and soul with nightmares for the rest of his pathetic life. Praying for those innocent pups they found in his property.

    Why would this vile monster chain this dog up in the woods and left to die? Unchain the dog and let him run away. Would have stood a better chance than this scum gave this dog. Hope they catch him and throw him in jail with dog lovers to beat up on him. Justice served.

    Yeargin: I pray whatever justice to be had by the hands of God, that it finds you swiftly with the SAME treatment of EXTREME fear and violence causing a barbaric death, BUT 1 million fold WORSE! Eye for an eye, ass wipe! Praise be to God for ALL His work to bring out the evil and raise up the faithful.

    What they do to animals should be done to them. When the hell are these animal laws going to get stricter. If a human was chained that is a different story. Like I said before, has these low life scumbags ever thought about it if their low life mother chained and starved them when they were born, then these bastards wouldn’t do it if they had a decent brain. Hope they all rot with cancer.
