We see too many reports of animal cruelty time and again.
This is certainly not the first time we see cruel acts forced upon the very animals who trust us.
The least we can all do is treat all animals with kindness and equality.
While we all can’t dedicate our lives to ending animal suffering, the least we can do is try our best to stop it when we do see it happening.
Crimes against helpless animals occur all over the world.
Every day we are subject to story after story of animals being abused or hurt.
Leaving a dog tied up in this manner to endure the blazing hot sun is terrible.
Anyone who thinks that this type of behavior is okay should never own an animal of their own.
It is our job to take care of any animal that we decide to adopt or buy, no matter what our current circumstances.
Animal lovers everywhere are hoping that the authorities step in and take care of this poor animal.
