Although there have been many appropriate penalties given for animal cruelty, many people still seem to ignore that warning. This time, the victim was a stray dog thrown into an asphalt pit in the town of Monte Chingolo, Argentina.
The dog was found in early May with his body covered in asphalt. It is known that the first people to discover it were two young men. While walking around the street, they saw it painfully crawling out of a hole. Immediately after that, the two boys called an animal protection center in town to save the poor stray dog’s life.
Because the asphalt is very strong, the animal protection center’s staff had to use up to 5 liters of oil to remove the black plastic from the dog’s fur. Finally, after 5 hours of washing, it became clean.
Mr. Myriam Ortellado, a protection center employee at Monte Chingolo, said the asphalt covered the dog’s entire body. Therefore, he assumed that it had been thrown into the asphalt pit by someone rather than accidentally falling into it. After joining the center, the dog was named Dau after the solution used to save his life.
