CREEK COUNTY, Okla. — An Oklahoma sheriff's office is looking for who left a dog mutilated and bound in a field.
The Humane Society of Tulsa shared a post on social media on Thursday showing Atlas -- a dog who had been dumped with his ears cut and covered in glue and his legs strapped together.
"Today's one of those days when you question humanity," the post read. "Not only was he dumped in a field with his back legs strapped together, glue (yes glue) had been poured into his ears and then fast food wrappers had been shoved into the ears and stuck into the glue. One ear canal is so bad it looks like he will need surgery. Some type of chemical had been dumped on his face/ears and it appears his ears have been partially burned or cut off."
The Humane Society said fast-food wrappers were found shoved in the dog's ears and a BB pellet was found inside him -- indicating he might have been shot by a BB gun.
"From the moment we met him, he wasn't mean, vicious or protectively aggressive. He just wanted help and warmed up to us as he realized we were there to help," the Humane Society said.
Atlas might need to see specialists and get surgery so they are asking people to donate to help with his care.
Anyone who might know something about who left Atlas in this condition is asked to contact the Creek County Sheriff’s Office.
