Tampa, Fla., police stopped an oncoming train moments before it struck a dog that was tied to the tracks and had been shot three times Wednesday, reports the New York Daily News.

Officers rescued the female pit bull mix, between 1 and 2 years old, that was expected to survive the despicable act of animal cruelty, though her right leg will need to be amputated, the Tampa Police Department said.

When officers arrived they discovered the animal, named Cabela, tied to the tracks with a belt. Officer Nick Wilson and Sgt. R. Mills freed the canine and rushed her to the Tampa Bay Veterinary Emergency Center where she is expected to recover.

Very good! Now if we could only find the inbred cretin who shot her & tied her up I'd really be happy. Or maybe just his pic & address would do. Blues, Stay safe.

What kind of scumbag does this kind of thing. The barabaric and savage aspects of mankind never fail to astonish me. I thank God every day for my brethern in uniform that push back against this kind of darkness. Stay safe -- you are the only thing standing between civilization and the Darkness.
