Believe it or not – this dog is actually still alive. But just barely. The people responsible for the condition of the dog are Quenton Eugene Mathis, 26, and Nicole Mathis, from Headland, Alabama. Mathis was given a six-year prison sentence for starving not one – but six dogs. The real tragedy of the story is that the dogs were so hungry, they attacked each other and ended up cannibalizing a dead dog.
Authorities had not even gone to the Mathis home because of the dogs – they had gone there to take custody of the four-year-old boy, Mathis’s son who lived at the house. The couple had reportedly moved out of the home just three weeks earlier.
Inside the home were one healthy dog and a half-eaten carcass. Four dogs were tied up outside. Nicole Mathis was arrested and give one year in jail. Share away, people.
