Man's cruelty again animals knows no bounds. Yet another sickening example - an 8 month old galgo puppy burned and forced to ingest acid. Photos on this link. Here's a translation of the case.
Her name is Corcha. She's an 8-month old little galga. She was burned with acid, forced to ingest it after a marriage ceremony, believe it or not! It happened in Merida. The poor thing is probably blind and will carry the scars (both mentally and physically) forever.
Lévriers sans Frontières has taken her under their wing.
"They are tortured, burned, beaten, hanged, soiled, despised: it is galgos, these dogs are still called "invisible" ...
Corcha this little pup of 8 months was burned alive at the start of a marriage, in the town of Merida. Corcha had to swallow toxic substances that burned her abdomen, her body and her eyes, acid presumably as is the custom ...
Corcha was hospitalized in intensive care for two weeks balancing between life and death. She will bear keep forever the scars of her ordeal. She may have lost sight and will need to be examined by a veterinarian who specializes in ophthalmology.
Corcha will forever be a living symbol of the barbarity of men.
The sponsorship via Actuanimaux will help the association to fund hospitalization in intensive care and treatment. By your clicks, calls and donations you will help the rebirth of small Corcha.
Now we can say that Corcha responds well to treatment and recovers very encouraging. We devote very soon to record progress already made. We still do not know if her eyes can be saved, treatments ahead lengthy and costly but we believe that Corcha will recover despite what she has suffered."
