You cannot trust some people with animals.
Animal abuse is still rampant in many parts of the world despite continued efforts to bring the practice to an end.
Many of the times, I wonder why one would harm a pet that gives them unconditional love. It takes me a lot of time as I try to figure out why this happens.
A search on the internet leads me to cases similar to the one below, and after that, my heart is filled with desperation.
Lourens Van Wyk, a South Africa Pastor, discovered something very upsetting while on a ride on a rail line.
He came across a plastic bag and thought of checking its contents, and what he saw took him aback.
Van Wyk realized there was something amiss after coming across a discarded plastic bag and thought of checking what was inside the bag. Somehow, he thought someone had abandoned a baby, but after checking, he was left in a state of disbelief.
A pup tied with shoelaces had been dumped. It could neither bark or breathe. The pastor moved swiftly, taking the puppy, and within no time, he was on his way to the veterinary.
He then contacted the Helderberg Animal Welfare Society near Cape Town, where the pup who was given the name Trax who could be given all the necessary care for him to recover.
