Last week, five dogs, mainly pit bulls, were abandoned in and near Swope Park.
KCTV5 reported that the Missouri Pit bull Rescue group has saved all of the dogs (except for one that was already dead when volunteers found it in the park), including one named Conquest, who was found barely alive after being dumped in the park. And you can imagine what's coming next: The dogs have wounds that appear to have come from being forced to fight.
"He has quite a severe wound on this side of his neck," the rescue group's Julue Collura told KCTV5. "It's sickening, it's upsetting and we need this to stop. The problem keeps getting worse, it multiplies.
"He's been abused and recently dumped in very bad condition. Emaciated, there's fresh wounds, old wounds."
It is sickening, and hopefully the bastards who dumped the dogs (and possibly made them fight) are found.
