- Baltimore, Maryland, USA -
On Thursday, September 26, Baltimore City Police received a call about a stray dog who was bleeding and running loose.
Officers responded to the 1200 block of Gittings Avenue and found the beautiful dog in the pictures covered in fresh stab wounds.
The furbaby was first taken to the police station, then, upon arrival of Animal Control, she was transported to one of BARCS ’ partner ER hospitals.
BARCS (Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter) is an animal shelter in Baltimore.
The defenseless dog, named Misty, had 11 stab wounds inflicted deliberately to her neck, back, and along her tail.
An X-ray showed that none of the wounds were deep enough to penetrate her airway or vital organs.
On October 2, BARCS posted on their Facebook page that Misty was doing fine after her surgeries and that if the person who reported this to the police didn’t have when they did, Misty would have not made it!
The animal shelter is not sure at this point whether Misty will make a full recovery but they expect her to have a good quality of life.
There is an open investigation for this case.
Sadly, animals are voiceless and those who are abused can’t testify about the unconscionable suffering that they endured.
We have to be their voice, so please, if you have any information about who stabbed this truly beautiful dog, call the Baltimore City 311 hotline to file a report with the BCPD and Baltimore City Animal Control.
