On May 29, 2014, police officers from Linares, Spain, saved the life of an innocent dog that almost died at the hands of two animal abusers. The criminals planned to hang the innocent animal from a mining shaft.

The dog was saved thanks to local residents who contacted authorities when they noticed something out of the ordinary close to the mining shaft. The area is accessible on foot or bicycle, but on that day, there was a car parked nearby.

When authorities received the phone call, two police officers patrolling the area were dispatched to the location. When they arrived, they found two 30-years-old men watching the animal suffer, while this was tied by its neck with rope and dangled from the top of the shaft.

Immediately the officers rescued the pet and arrested the animal abusers.

The canine was rushed to a local vet clinic where it received emergency care. The abusers were taken to a police station, they were booked and charged with various counts of animal abuse.

The dog is expected to make a full recovery and he will be released to local rescue group Arconatura. The organization will care for the pet, cover all medical expenses and ensure the dog finds a loving forever home.

The abusers, will have to answer for the crime they committed.

  1. The laws need to change soon. There must be more severe punishment for animal abusers like this. Personally I think they should both be hanged themselves. And the poor dog looks like he has already been suffering by being starved. Thank God, the officers took the call and saved the sweet dog

  2. I think if like for like punishments were put in place for acts of animal cruelty… There may be reduced indidents.. An eye for an eye.. Etc

  3. If I was the cop I would of just took the dog and put them men in the dogs place and hung them and sat there with a big smile and watch them suffer.

  4. i swear ide put all 13 bullets of my gun in both of these low life scumbag heartless pieces of shit and make sure they live long enough to watch them die a slow death as i burn them alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
