No matter what your stance on pit bulls is, no animal deserves to this.
According to L.A. news station KTLA, Tampa police found Cabela—a pit bull mix, pictured above—shot and bleeding, tied to a set of railroad tracks in the city’s Sulphur Springs neighborhood on Wednesday. Folks called after they heard someone fire a gun.
Cabela was hit by three shots—two to the neck and one to the shoulder.
Officers freed the pup from the tracks and rushed her to Tampa Bay Veterinary Emergency Center, where Dr. Jamie Davidson and staff stabilized and named her.
The dog will have to have its front right leg removed because of the damage from the gunshots, but should be rehabilitated within a week, the vet said.
