Two amazing African Tails volunteers, Andre and Richelle, who run the Klapmuts Haven found Lucy (as they named her) tied up to a railway line where she was left to be hit by a train!
Lucy's (also pregnant) back legs was stretched out to be tied to her front legs and her head was tied to the bolt that holds the track in place where her head was just centimeters away from the track.
A train went over her leg where the paw was cut off and the muscle had been ripped from the already smashed bone!
Lucy is currently at the Market Street Animal Hospital where wonderful vets from the SPCA have stabilized her. The SPCA chief inspectorate Andries Venter had offered to do the further remedial operations.
SPCA chief inspector Andries Venter said they suspect the dog was tied to the railway line because she was pregnant.
NSPCA spokeswoman Chris Kuch said: "In the event that an animal is no longer wanted, please take it to an SPCA. No questions will be asked."
It is just SICK how people can do this to the loving animals and when I hear such things it really breaks my heart!!!
