An 18th month old brown pitbull was left tied to a tree during this really chilly weather and that’s not the worst part because police found out that the dog’s tongue was cut out.
A couple alerted police about the situation noting that there were a group of people fighting. They then flashed their headlights and the group dispersed. The couple said they later found the dog, who was “cold and shivering.”
The dog was later taken to Noah’s Arks Rescue for treatment. The dog, named Briggs, was at the ICU for 24 hours and underwent a number of procedures in an effort to save its life.
The dog is still recovering and cannot eat solids yet as its injuries in its mouth and tongue are yet to heal completely. He is set to the rehab facility of Noah’s Arks Rescue to learn how to eat without a tongue.
“It’s by far one of the worst cases I’ve ever seen. It’s horrific,” Nelka told WBTV by phone. “I would really love to see justice for this dog, because this didn’t have to happen.”
