Dogs are said to be “man’s best friend,” but in what may prove to be one of the worst animal cruelty cases recently, Monterion Dionte Davis, of Forsyth, Georgia (about 50 miles outside Atlanta) has shown that man can certainly be a dog’s worst nightmare.
Davis, 19, tied an electrical cord around the neck of his mixed breed dog and left it in the woods near his house to die. Thankfully, Save-a-Pet, an animal rescue group in the area found the dog and took it to a local veterinarian who then reported the abuse to the sheriff’s department.
Sheriff John Carey Bittick said it was “without a doubt” the worst case of animal cruelty he’s ever witnessed.
The injured dog required stitches to repair a severed trachea and other injuries but will survive the incident. Davis, who deserves to be tied up in the woods and left to languish, himself, was fined $15,000 and is awaiting trial. If justice prevails, and he is convicted, he could spend 10 years in jail. Our fingers are crossed.
