A darling puppy, not quite eight weeks of age, was severely injured when kids in a neighborhood allegedly pelted her with rocks. It’s hard to imagine anyone wanting to hurt an innocent puppy, much less children, but this cruel abuse allegedly took place this week reports the Haley Graves Foundation in North Carolina.
On Friday, the Foundation wrote:
On our way to pick up this baby. Finder says neighborhood kids were pummeling her with rocks. I just can’t…She is 7.5 weeks old. And so sweet. Will be rushing her to Benessere Animal Hospital
People who saw the photo of the puppy’s horrible injury are rightfully outraged – on Saturday morning, the Foundation updated concerned followers with the status of the cruelty case/investigation:
We understand this is frustrating and angers each of you, we feel this same frustration and anger.
Please understand we do not have an address of where the incident took place and legally we could not release that if we did. We have spoke with the authorities and have requested an investigation be opened. Not only for Tali but out of concern for other animals that may be on the property. We are confident this is happening. We kindly ask that at this time we turn our focus to Tali and allow the authorities to investigate.
The puppy, dubbed Tali, underwent surgery to remove her badly damaged eye on Friday – fortunately no signs of head trauma were discovered.
