Two yeaers after Caitlyn, and a few months after Justice, another dog has been found, muzzled with tape in North America.

In the little town of Lexington, South Carolina, a woman spotted a Doberman with his snout and face covered in tape. In a Facebook post, she asks for help, hoping that someone would be able to aid the poor animal:

 

Help! Who can we call about this baby? He has tape around his mouth and face! When he was out of the fence we tried calling him over to help but he seemed so scared!

The post was quickly shared by several people in the area, including a young woman who immediately went with a friend to save the injured dog. The two women called him “Tank,” before bringing him to a clinic to be treated.

Now, Tank is resting at the animal control clinic in Lexington, awaiting the results of an investigation. When the time comes, he’ll be put up for adoption, and will be entrusted to a family where he will never have to suffer again.

 

His owner risks a maximum penalty of five years in prison and $5,000 in fines. An equivalent punishment to what Caitlyn’s abuser received on March 24.
