While strolling by a creek bank, a man discovered two adorable puppies left to drown in a sealed aquarium. The terrible discovery happened in Hinds County, MS. Such news are always welcomed with shock and grief, especially when they happen in isolated cases, or close to our homes.
Matt Williamson was searching for his dog not far from his home in Hinds County. While walking close to Clinton-Tinnin Road he reached a creek and stumbled upon a large fish tank on the creek bank, its lid sealed shut with cement. The location was close to an abandoned bridge. Williamson called the sheriff’s deputies who managed to rescue the dogs in time.
The black and white puppies were later transported to the Animal Rescue League of Mississippi.
Williamson was visibly shaken about what he had seen, as he stated that as he approached the aquarium, he saw in the eyes of the puppies a cry for help. He added that whoever put them in the fish tank most surely attempted to drown them.
The puppies are doing very well, taking into consideration the ordeal they have been put through. A veterinarian has examined them and concluded that they are healthy. They ended up with a fever though.
Debra Boswell, director of Mississippi Animal Rescue League, stated that, following standard procedure, the puppies have been isolated in a quiet place because they need to cool down and minimise their stress level. Boswell added that the two are most likely feral, born in the forest because they do not seem used to the handling of humans.
The two canines will remain separated from the outside world until they will most probably check out. If they will be considered healthy, they will be available for adoption.
The discovery of two adorable puppies left to drown in a sealed aquarium has shocked everyone, but we must acknowledge the fact that cases like this happen every day around the world. Many animal rights organisations are trying to raise awareness against animal cruelty and violence and fight against them. Most of the cases of animal abuse take place in circuses, zoos or scientific laboratories, but there are many more such events happening all around individually, and these cannot be linked to any institutes or organisations.
