An injured Pit bull, with its muzzle tightly wired, arrived on a family’s porch, desperately seeking assistance. Fortunately, Sgt. Bryan McFarlane from the Orange County Virginia Animal Shelter in Orange, Virginia, promptly responded and swiftly transported the dog, named “Wyatt,” to the nearest emergency veterinarian.
Someone had wrapped the dog’s muzzle very tightly with a wire. As a result, his muzzle was swollen, and the wire had cut through his lower cheeks. He could not even open his mouth to eat a piece of a hot dog. He also has broken teeth and mange.
After vets expertly tended to his wounds he was taken to the shelter to recover. Shelter staff said they hadn’t seen a case of animal abuse as severe as Wyatt’s in a long time.
“Thanks to all of you for the love and support for our sweet boy Wyatt!! He had his dental and has recovered wonderfully,” the shelter wrote on Facebook.
