A golden retriever puppy from Seoul, South Korea has been recovering this week after rescuers found her tied up and her mouth cut open to make her look like the villain “Joker” from Batman movies. Six-month-old Bobby was found with her mouth bound with rope and deep wounds on her legs.
According to the Daily Mail, Bobby was found in a wasteland and had been left to die; she was unable to eat or drink. Her legs and paws had infected wounds and burn injuries; her front leg had been broken. In addition, someone smashed in her toenails making it a painful struggle just to walk. Both sides of her mouth had been slit to give her the smile portrayed by the “Joker.”
Miraculously, Bobby survived and underwent surgery to repair her leg and her wounds. Animal welfare groups were able to raise funds to help, and despite her ordeal, Bobby is still lovable towards humans.
Authorities want to find the person(s) responsible for such an egregious act of intentional animal cruelty.
