Complete betrayal, owner throws injured dog in dumpster to die

See also

According to Tuesday's Dallas Observer, a Texas man displayed a shocking lack of compassion for his injured dog when he threw the dog into an apartment complex dumpster and left him to die.

According to a witness, on Monday night the man's pit bull was struck by a car and severely wounded.

Rather than seeking help, or calling animal control, or even offering the injured dog comfort, the man decided to drag the dog to a dumpster at a Vickery Meadow apartment complex, and throw him inside.

The man, whose name has not yet been released, told the woman that the dog was not going to make it, hence his disposal in the trash container.

The woman who bore witness to the despicable act looked into the dumpster and found the dog alive, and crying - when she asked the man to help her remove the wounded dog, he refused.

Without the dog owner's help, the woman somehow managed to maneuver the injured dog out of the container and into her apartment - she then contacted animal control for help.

The wounded dog was taken away by Dallas Animal Services; he was found to be so grievously wounded that he had to be humanely euthanized.

No word on whether or not the dog's heartless owner will be charged with cruelty.
