Dog won’t bite, so man hacks off it’s leg

This is a truly disgusting story, taking the old “man bites dog” headline to it’s cruelty-laden extreme:

The hunt is on tonight to find whoever cut the leg off a pit bull. The abused dog was found wandering the streets of Atlanta this week.

The bone exposed on its hind leg — likely chopping it off with an axe. Veteranarians say the wound was no accident — that it was a clean cut with something very sharp. They suspect someone wanted the pit bull to fight, but the dog was too gentle.

And I thought black cats were the object of the most cruelty during Halloween.

I seriously hope the punishment for whomever committed this crime involves pain at the hands (paws) of dogs. Sicko.

    This story is so disgusting; I hope the catch the twisted mutant that did this. Please don’t judge Atlanta in a bad light by this horrific act. Metro-Atlanta is home to great people and their dogs with many dog friendly parks and organizations. A lot of good work is being accomplished on behalf of our four legged friends. ñ Jamie Bloomquist,
