Someone locked a puppy inside of a mailbox outside of a veterinary hospital in Buna, Texas, over the weekend. The deplorable act of cruelty was made public by the Buna Animal Hospital on February 12. The veterinary hospital posted the following message on its Facebook page early Sunday morning:
IT TAKES A SPECIAL KIND OF STUPID TO LOCK A PUPPY IN MY MAILBOX WITH NO FOOD OR WATER ON A WEEKEND. IF ANYONE SAW ANYTHING LATE SAT NIGHT OR BEFORE 8 AM SUNDAY LET ME KNOW, REVIEWING SECURITY FOOTAGE TODAY.
Images of the puppy were not made public, but there is promising news for the abandoned pup. Several hours after the veterinary hospital’s initial Facebook post, a heartwarming update was made to the page:
Mailbox puppy will be ok. Has a new home. Thanks for all the prayers for this baby.
One day later, indication that the local authorities are working on investigating the case of abandonment:
Jasper County Sheriff’s office is on the case. They are working hard to identify the person seen on security video abandoning the puppy. We can see the man’s dark gray 4 door F250 with dented side on the bed and his face. Thank you for all you do Jasper County Law enforcement!
