A large reward is being offered by the Humane Society of the United States following the discovery of a severely injured dog who had been “slashed, stabbed, and brutally beaten.” The dog, a pit bull dubbed Tank, was found by a good Samaritan who initially thought that he had been attacked by another animal.
According to the Humane Society of Bay County, Michigan, a veterinary exam revealed that the injuries were inflicted by a human. The animal welfare agency writes:
This sweet, happy dog who had done nothing but give his rescuer kisses and tail wags, was repeatedly slashed, stabbed, and brutally beaten. There were cuts & stab wounds old and new, bruises old and new, and it seems that this dog had been subject to torture for the majority of his time on earth.
Due to the placement of his wounds and his demeanor, his veterinarian is convinced that he did not fight back.
ABC 12 News reports that the Humane Society of the United States is now offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of whoever is responsible for the attack on Tank. Molly Tamulevich, Michigan state director for the Humane Society of the United States, stated,
“We are hopeful that this reward encourages anyone with information about this terrible crime to come forward so that the abuser can be brought to justice.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Bay County Animal Services at 989-894-0679.
Tank continues to recover from his injuries.
