There’s a saying that goes, “A dog is a man’s best friend.” This has been proven time and again with the many instances of dogs saving another man’s life, or a dog patiently waiting for its owner that’s long been gone, that circulate on the news and on social media. Sadly, however, there are still people who don’t see dogs as the precious creature that they are.
In 2015, Matt Williamson was looking for his own dog around the creek of Hinds County when he noticed something unusual. Around the area, he saw an aquarium obviously tossed away by its previous owners. The aquarium looked dirty as if it’s been floating on water for quite some time. He was surprised when he heard something from the old aquarium.
Hearing the unusual noise, Matt decided to move closer to the aquarium. As he went in, he saw a silhouette of two black creatures moving inside. He went in a little closer and found out that there were two live puppies inside the abandoned aquarium. What’s even worse was that the tank was cemented shut, leaving the two fur babies helpless!
“As I got closer to it, I could see these eyes peering back at me and they look pretty desolate. Like they needed help and that’s when I called it in to the authorities,” he told reporters from 16 WAPT News Jackson. “They wanted these puppies to drown in here,” he added.
It is saddening to know that some people are capable of doing such horrendous thing to creatures that mean no harm to them. This situation speaks so much of the responsibility of being a pet owner as people should not be getting any pets if they are unfit to take care of them. What’s even worse is that they go above and beyond when it comes to eliminating these poor creatures, but couldn’t lift a finger just to take care of them.
Luckily, there are people out there like Matt, who has a soft spot for animals. After the puppies were rescued from their dreadful situation, they were immediately turned over to the Animal Rescue League where they were given the proper care and medication in order to heal. We only hope that these puppies have found a loving home for them to enjoy their days.
