Hope survived, but the same can’t be said for the dog at the center of a second incident of animal torture in a nearby county.
Sadly, the female Pit Bull Terrier mix found Friday afternoon was already dead when she was found by officials. The Pit Bull was discovered deceased in rural Kaufman County, Texas, her mouth bound with electrical tape.
“There is a well-documented link between animal cruelty and human violence,” SPCA of Texas President James Bias said in a press release. “Helping the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Department bring the person or people who did this to justice will help stop the cycle of abuse.”
