A family’s cherished pet was stolen from her home in Newry, Co Down in Northern Ireland and was found on Tuesday with shocking injuries. Patch was found by a local woman who called authorities – the dog had been doused with acid.
According to the rescue organization, Doggy911 Rescue, the Staffordshire bull terrier had been lured away from her home and then abused. She suffered fatal acid burns to her back and face – blinding her in one eye.
“Little patch was taken away from her home in newry and possibly attacked with acid patch later passed away due to her severe injuries.
We do not tolerate animal abuse of any kind in Northern Ireland her family have been left completely devastated and heartbroken due to the actions some evil scumbag has committed against innocent patch,” the organization posted on Facebook.
According to the Daily Star, the veterinarian treating Patch, stated in his 30 years of practicing medicine, he had never seen a worst case of animal cruelty – the dog’s mouth blistered, her skin peeling off and the permeating odor of burning flesh. The poor dog’s tongue had ulcerated as she tried to lick the acid off of her skin.
The dog’s injuries were so severe, humane euthanasia was the only alternative. The treating veterinarian said the abuse was so egregious, he would remember it for a long time.
“We will not tolerate animal abuse of any kind in Northern Ireland her family have been left completely devastated and heartbroken due to the actions some evil scumbag has committed against innocent patch.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the rescue organization or PSNI on 101 in Newry Co. Down. Imagine – if someone could do this to an innocent dog, what might they do to a child, a woman or your next door neighbor? Help Patch find justice. Get this sick jerk off the streets.
“To the low life thug that has committed this kind of cruelty against an animal I hope you can sleep tonight knowing that a family have been left deeply shocked and devastated that there beloved pet dog has been taken from there lives due to your evil actions.”
Rest in peace Patch.
