The Villalobos Rescue Center in southern Louisiana is sadly no stranger to unfortunate cases of abused and abandoned animals. However, this Pit Bull discovered outside a local jail by one of their employees was in a particularly awful situation.
Now named Curtis, the pup was suffering from a gunshot wound but he wouldn't go down without a fight.
Warning: some of the images of his wounds are very graphic.
When they sprayed his wound with disinfectant, thousands of maggots appeared.
It was a clear indication he had been left on his own in this state for days.
