Police have no leads in sunburned dog case

Posted: Updated:

A horribly sunburned dog is recovering at the Southern Arizona Humane Society in what appears to be a case of animal cruelty. " These are such severe burns from direct sun exposure," says Marsh Myers of the Humane Society. "They're blistering up, they begin to leak, they were bloody, sticky. He looks a lot better than he did five days ago."

Bobcat however, was able to save himself by chewing through his collar and getting to shelter. "He's very social, very sweet," says Myers. "He's feeling a lot better this week than last. His progress is great! One souvenir, he'll have the scars for the rest of his life. Once Bobcat is feeling better, Myers says he will be put up for adoption.
