A seriously injured dog found wandering in a rural village in Cumbria with ‘holes in his head’ has been undergoing emergency life-saving surgery while the RSPCA searches for those responsible for inflicting such severe wounds on him.
Our story yesterday certainly angered many on you with pictures that were hard to look at, but many offered help, support and even a home to this terrified animal.
Here's what some of you had to say on our Facebook pages:
Just hope he can survive this, and that they get whoever has done it. Just cannot accept this sort of cruelty in this day and age. Unforgivable!
Poor dog. How anyone could do this to any living creature is beyond me. I certainly hope they are tracked down and punished . Hope you get better soon Bruce and find a loving home. Xxx
Why ????? Just why would you do this to a dog. X
Can't comprehend what goes through these peoples heads. Horrific.
We can offer him a home if he needs it later if he's ok 😡
Oh my goodness. This poor defenceless dog!! What on earth could possess anyone to do something like this. Just sick!! Really hope he’ll be ok. He’ll prob struggle to trust humans again.
I'm so upset and angry. Who are these animals that did this. Horrific.
Absolute sick! I really do not understand the cruel lengths people will go to- poor dog who never deserved such barbaric treatment. They give us nothing but love and trust. The b****** deserves the same treatment as they gave the dog
OMG. Who could be that evil
I genuinely don't understand how we are in 2018 and this is acceptable. Abuse of something vulnerable, inflicting pain on a vulnerable animal. Straight to a Bentham prison.
This is heartbreaking. The law needs to change and more of a punishment needs putting in place for the monsters that inflict suffering on these poor animals.
I hope Bruce recovers and finds a loving forever home to look after him xx
I can not even look just reading the heading makes my stomach turn I hope however did this is caught, it’s just disgusting
I’ve seen an update on this on twitter and he seems to be doing ok. Wagged his tail and was pictured playing with a little boy so hopefully on the mend. Sad world we live in with humans who could do this to an animal.
