The dog was taken to a veterinary clinic, where he was euthanized due to the severity of his injuries. The veterinarian reported that the dog’s legs were broken and that he had large lacerations on his front legs. He also had multiple healed injuries throughout his body, something that is reportedly common in victims of dog fighting.
Greenville police are investigating, but do not have any suspects yet. Sign below and demand the maximum penalty in this case.
Dear Solicitor Wilkins,
A dog was abandoned in the bushes outside of a church. He could barely move or breathe and later had to be euthanized due to the extent of his injuries. We demand justice for this innocent dog.
The pit bull suffered two broken legs and multiple large lacerations. In addition, he had numerous healed injuries throughout his body. These, along with the lack of a collar or microchip, are indications that this dog was likely a victim of dog fighting. Though Greenville police have no suspects in mind, they are investigating and looking for any help in finding the person who abandoned this dog.
Dog fighting is a horrific crime that almost always leads to the death of the dogs involved. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
