Disturbing Pictures of a dog being tortured on a short chain and made to stand on its hind legs under the scorching heat in Teloloapan, Mexico, infuriates animal lovers worldwide.
It wasn’t long before concerned by-passers attempted to intervene. One stranger even approached the dog’s owners and begged them to surrender the animal, but they merely chased the man away.
Fortunately, said stranger was able to snap a series of pictures before leaving the scene, pictures which have since been uploaded to social media.
It’s precisely these images that have caused such a stir online, with people aiming to spread them in the hope that the local police are forced to intervene.
After all, the situation isn’t simply a question of comfort for the dog, but rather one of survival. In such heat he could easily die of exhaustion, while the chain about his neck looks short enough to choke him if he stands in the wrong position.
We, along with a great deal of people who have seen the images, are praying that someone intervenes and saves this dog’s life. As it stands, his future looks bleak indeed.
