A dog has been hacked in the head with a machete, slicing his face down the middle from his eye, down his snout and right through his nose. The dog wandered the streets for around five days, as infection set into the critical injury. We cannot begin to imagine the blinding pain this dog has been forced to endure as he staggered through each day and night, with no pain relief and no help.
The rescuer said the dog ate two plates of rice, but with great difficulty because it’s jaws are sliced in half down the middle and infection has set into the entire wound area. The dog survived by some sipping water each day, but was very weak and malnourished.
The dog, now known as Brown, was in critical distress when rescued by a Vietnamese husband and wife team Hoang Nhon and his wife Truc Linh Vo. The attack took place in Xuyen Moc – Ba Ria Vung Tau, a rural province out of Saigon.
The husband drove 50 kms to Vung Tau to take the dog to the nearest vet clinic for the wound to be disinfected. Due to the gravity of the injury the man then drove the dog another 100kms to bring Brown the dog, to a veterinary hospital in Saigon.
Vietnam has no animal protection laws and the man who did this heinous act of cruelty would not be punished by law. At this point the person who did this act is not known. Fight Dog Meat will continue to fight for animal protection laws in every dog and cat meat country.
