An act of cruelty was averted today when employees of a Romanian municipality saved the life of a little puppy in an extremely perilous situation.
“In the early hours of this day, we received information that a puppy was fighting for its life on the Trotuș River, upstream from the bridge,” the mayor of the locality stated.
It appears that an individual, who was captured on video, placed the puppy in a sack and threw it into the water with the intention of killing it. Fortunately, an employee of the municipality, assisted by another volunteer, intervened to rescue the puppy. The owner of the puppy has been identified, and the video evidence captured the entire incident.
Authorities are preparing a criminal complaint, which will be filed on Monday against the individual.
