I found the news today on one of the Russian channels.
Some days ago on one of the Moscow metro stations a man threw a puppy on the rails right in front of the coming train. No-one paid any attention, the driver didn't stop the train, the passengers and the police didn't pay any attention and the man (hard to call him this now) who threw the dog just got into this very train and went away.
Only after the train left the station one young man jumped on the rails, took the puppy and put him back on the platform. The other passengers helped him get off the rails.
The puppy is alive but is severely injured. It is now in one of the veterinarian's hospitals in Moscow, the volunteers are taking care of it together with the veterinarians. The dog has lots of bruises, but it's spine is broken, so she can move on only two legs, the front ones. Volunteers and doctors are trying to make some kind of device which will help the dog move at least somehow.
I was crying when I read the article. As the dog owner (I have got a german shepherd) I really can't see any reason for such cruelty. This is a living creature which feels everything, it feels pain, it feels love and it is just nothing short of a miracle that the dog is treating the doctors and volunteers with love now.
I really hope the dog finds someone who will be loving and caring owner for her.
And I do pray that the police is able to find the man who did this atrocity.
