Dog found with tongue cut out
“Someone had cut off his tongue that's why he could not eat and had ended up this way.
‘He was skeletal’
The dog was found by Surie Pillay, The Mercury reported, who immediately took the him to a vet in Umhlanga.
On Phoenix’s Facebook post, Pillay wrote that when she asked residents about his owners, everyone said he could be a stray and that he had been wandering around for days.
"When I spotted him, he collapsed on the ground and had no energy to wake up. He was skeletal.”
One of the group’s representatives, Neeri Naidoo, told The Mercury that the dog was malnourished, hungry and thirsty.
Due to his mutilation he could not eat or drink.
A volunteer in the group, Dianne Bester and other animal rights activists launched a campaign to find the person responsible.
