Animal cruelty is on the rise and this poor dog is an unfortunate victim. And the owners just won't let anyone help.
When it comes to our furry friends, animal lovers will take up arms if they see mistreatment. Some of the biggest victims of animal cruelty are the strays who have no one to care for them. Most of these abused animals aren't lucky enough to have someone help them, and others are abused even after they're adopted.
One of those unfortunate ones was a poor dog in Mexico. Recently, heartbreaking pictures of an innocent dog tied on a short leash to a window in the devastating heat surfaced on the net. Going viral, animal lovers were outraged and demanded that a strong punishment be given to the owners. According to an animal website, I Love My Dogs So Much, the chain was so short, the dog was forced onto its hind legs with no room to put its front paws down.
With this atrocity happening in the residential area of Emiliano Zapata in Teloloapan, Mexico, it was clear that the helpless dog was choking throughout the blistering heat of the day. Fortunately, this act of cruelty did not go unnoticed by those who stroll along the neighborhood. Some even attempted to approach the owners to find out why they were oblivious to their pet's extreme discomfort. One even pleaded with the owners to release the dog. Instead, that kind soul was chased off the property.
Trying to reason with the owners, they were given the response that the dog was "doing fine". For these ungrateful owners, they were happy with the fact that they were at least giving it food and water. They did not see anything wrong with what they were doing.
I’m sorry if I saw this I’d walk up to door and choke the owners myself why don’t neighbors help do ridiculous! https://t.co/t5uI2N80go— Barbara Lee (@BarbaraLee12) June 28, 2019
Unfortunately, people who tried to help did so in vain. But the stranger who was chased away was not willing to take this lying down. Instead, he took to social media with pictures of the poor dog in its situation. He hoped that the proper authorities would step up and figure out a way to help the dog before it was too late.
Those who saw the post were ready to voice their own anger. They provided their own solutions.

A Facebook user Ruth Bates Ross commented, "I know put them on a chain, and I'll mind my business, makes me sick, is it any wonder I love animals more than so-called humans, they disgust me to the core😡."
Another user said, "Awful people doing this to the dog." One user Lourens Rosslee had her own two bits to say. She commented on the post saying, "How extremely cruel, may Karma get this piece of scum that abusing this poor poor poor doggy. Mexico is known for its abuse of animals. It's very hard to look at that pictures."
