Some of the terrible things that happen in the world are just flat-out baffling.  It’s hard to understand the mind of a maniac or an evil person.  A recent event in Argentina will make you shake your head in disbelief or light a fire in your heart.

What this police officer did to a homeless dog and her pups is unforgivable.  Eyewitnesses were there to see his actions.

The dog was completely harmless and had just given birth three days prior.  When Argentinian police officer, Maximiliano Sergio Mellado, found her, he made a despicable decision!

Welcome to the town of Neuquén, Argentina.  Residents of the small city are outraged over what a local police officer did to a harmless dog.

When officer Mellado discovered the mother, Milagros, he shot her and one of her puppies for absolutely no reason. Only a sadistic person would commit such a violent act without cause.

Veterinarian, Federico Lopez, worked feverishly for 6 hours on Milagros.  He did his best to reconstruct her jaw and save her eye.  Sadly, it wasn’t enough.  Milagros died just three days later.

Mellado is now facing an animal cruelty charge.  He skipped both of his hearings and fled the city.  Hopefully, they can track him down and make him pay for his actions.
