Yesterday this dog was spotted from a car by accident. Animal welfare charity Andjeo Sarajevo saw a wire around his neck.
This poor dog passed by thousands of people on a busy street in Hrasnica, Sarajevo, and of course no one paid any attention to him, he’s a big enough dog but they acted like he didn’t even exist. Andjeo Sarajevo stopped and saw the same thing they had seen a little while ago with Faith. A tight wire deeply sunk into his neck.
“He didn’t resist much, either he didn’t have the strength to or else he knew we could help him. We contacted the vet on call and took him there straight away, the scene was even worse under the harsh light of the clinic.”
We have named him Fidel.
Soon we’ll know more. According to the vet, Fidel needs to have an X-ray in order to see if his oesophagus has been damaged. If it is damaged, it’s probably best to end his suffering. He’s a medium sized dog, his head is similar to a Kangal dog.
UPDATE: Fidel is now entirely well, but he is still in pension in Sarajevo. He desperately needs a home!
