A dog fitted with a heavy steel neck shackle that was ‘slowly throttling it a little more each day’ has been rescued in China.

The dog is believed to have been fitted with the quarter-inch thick metal collar, which weighed more than 2lbs, when it was younger.

Police are now looking for the culprits of this animal cruelty after the dog was found wandering the streets of Taiyuan in Shanxi province, northern China.

Throttled each day: This dog was found with a neck shackle that was ‘slowly throttling it a little more each day’ as the animal grew

One rescue worker said: ‘As the dog grew, the collar got tighter and tighter throttling the dog a little more each day.’

Firefighers cut the collar off and the animal is now recovering in a refuge centre.

 

 

 

Police believe the dog may have been kept as a guard dog or working animal until its collar made it too difficult to keep.

A police spokesman said: ‘This cruelty has been brought to our attention and we are trying to find the culprits.

Working dog: The animal is believed to have been kept as a guard dog or working animal until the collar made it too difficult to keep

****************************************The Only Thing I Can Say Is…..WHY??? Why do this?  Why have a pet?  Why doesn’t the “owner” wear a collar like this???.**********************************Renee

    Anyone who would commit this kind of act is as capable of committing the mass murders in Newtown, CT.
