You could not believe this story in this day and age but you can see it does happen where people can be so cruel to animals these dogs were so hungry they gnawed her leg to the bone
as they were so neglected and starving.
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — A case of animal cruelty has a left a pit bull with four newborn puppies recovering from a vicious attack by neighborhood dogs.
The Central California SPCA says they've had to amputate the dog's leg because of the severity of the injuries. Animal control officers say five dogs gnawed her leg to the bone but those dogs they say were victims themselves.
The CCSPCA said they were so neglected and starving, they cannibalized and tried to eat Sophia.
New motherhood is supposed to be a time of bonding, but for Sophia, she is having to balance that with recovery after being attacked by her neighbor's five dogs just one week after giving birth.
Amanda Yancy is a registered veterinary technician at the CCSPCA, and she has been caring for Sophia since Saturday. That is the day the wounded pit bull went under the knife to have her leg amputated because of her injuries.
“She has done really well,” she said. “She could have been totally withdrawn, getting rid of her baby, but she is taking to it very well.”
But Yancy knows though she is masking her discomfort, and the pain she is in is likely unbearable.
“Just seeing her and knowing while she may not be showing it,” she said. “She could be in a little pain because it is a hard operation. She is having to adjust to only having three legs and also motherhood of taking care of four babies at the same time.”
