Jane was shocked when she realized that someone had meticulously tethered the dog to a huge rock to ensure her death. The brave woman painstakingly pulled the dog out, who had become unresponsive by then.
Jane informed Nottinghamshire Police and rushed the dog to the local vet. Fortunately, the dog survived thanks to Jane’s fearless rescue!
The dog has now been named Bella and her health is on the mend. Cops and the local RSPCA officers are calling this “an evil and nasty thing to do”, and are leaving no stone unturned to find the person responsible.
They are currently looking into Bella’s microchip details. Spread the word and let’s help the cops hunt down the sinister owner!
Update: Cops have tracked down and arrested a 31-year-old woman as Bella’s owner. They haven’t revealed the name of the suspect as the investigation is still ongoing. They have appealed to the community to share any tips that can establish the charges. Let’s not stay quiet and demand the strictest punishment for the culprit, if found guilty!
