Warning: This story is not for the squeamish. It’s one of the more disgusting and heartbreaking things that you’re likely to read today. My insides are writhing just writing about it.
Apparently someone in Los Angeles wanted to get rid of a dog. Instead of handing him off to a friend, dropping him off at a shelter, or even just letting him roam the streets where he might at least be able to find some food and water and fend for himself, they deliberately made sure that he would be miserable for a long time and probably die in misery. They did that by putting him in a crude dog house, nailing it shut, and abandoning it on the street.
