What do you do when you see something moving in a ditch? Carlos Carillo and his colleague did the right thing. They got off the car and walked closer to the moving figure which turned out to be a dog. The men were heartbroken to find the dog tied up and decided to help the unfortunate pooch. It’s an inhumane thing to do and it’s punishable by law. The only ones that suffer are these poor souls. We can only think what would have happened if the men didn’t find the animal. Unfortunately, this heartbreaking story keeps on repeating for many other animals.
