Shelter asks for help after finding dog with chain pierced through her neck

A shelter in Wyoming reached out to the public on January 2 – asking for help in a disturbing case of animal cruelty involving a stray dog with a disturbing and undoubtedly painful pierce. In a public Facebook post, the Cheyenne Animal Shelter detailed how the dog was discovered:

Cheyenne Animal Control needs your help! A dog was recently turned in as a stray with a carabiner attached to a chain piercing through her neck. She is a pit bull/mix, and we believe she recently had puppies.

The reaction to the cruelty

The post, shared within the past hour, has already been shared hundreds of times and dozens of people have left comments of disgust and dismay. One person wrote:

I hope someone will speak up. Someone knows who’s dog this was and saw what happened to it. The pain this poor dog had to feel having that hang from her neck makes me sick to my stomach. Time to make this person pay for what they did.

And another:

It is scary how seriously sick some people are. Praying for everyone at the shelter who help these animals in need of their care!

Information needed

Anyone who has information about the dog, or who is responsible for hurting her, is asked to contact Cheyenne Animal Control at 307-635-1453.

    I honestly think the same thing that was done to this poor dog should be done to the poor excuse of a human being who did this. Maybe that POS would learn what pain means and never do anything like that again.

    Whoever did this horrible thing to this precious dog also took the pups and probably sold them. Check local areas to see if anyone knows about pups being sold or if anyone knows who is the owner. Then put a chain through his neck until he bleeds to death. What pain that poor girl has gone through.

    Cheyenne Wyoming is NOT only the Capitol City of Wyoming It is the Largest City in the State.. There is also a Very Large Airforce Base located there… and a VA Hospital. The population there is pretty diversified BUT FOR THE most PART THE Whole of Wyoming is Pretty Darn UPFRONT , CARING and DAMN PROUD of THEIR CITIES, TOWNS, FAMILIES and ANIMAL’s ….I hope the Rescue , Sheriff’s Department, and Local Law Enforcement AGENCIES TAKE a PRIORITY STANCE in THIS HORRIFIC CRIME… REMEMBER the DIRECTOR of a LOCAL SHELTER that Pepper Sprayed a Dog and euthanized it!!! Well the Citizens STOOD in UNITY and Made Sure The individual Was immediately Gone… I hope This CRUEL INCIDENT is PRIORITY and the BASTARD that DID THIS is CAUGHT and PROSCUTED ASAP… Wonder if IT IS A DOG FIGHTING RING!!!
