No one knows who could have been so sadistic as to attack a young, friendly pit bull mix in the head with either an ax or a machete on Monday, but Manatee County Animal Services and the Animal Network want to find the person responsible for such a horrendous act. The bleeding dog was found by Animal Control as the dog wandered along the 200 block of 60th Ave. West in Bradenton.
According to the
Bradenton Patch, Joel Richmond the enforcement supervisor of Manatee County Animal Services, stated it was the most severe case of animal cruelty in the county he had ever seen. A reward of more than $600 has been offered by the Animal Network for information about the culprit who attacked the innocent dog now named Axel by his rescuers. The reward amount offered has been increasing
The person responsible for this heinous crime faces felony animal cruelty charges.

A concerned neighbor notified Humane Officer Steve Bell about the brown and white dog with a visible gash in his skull walking down the street. The extremely sweet dog walked right over to the officer when called. The dog was rushed to the Beach Veterinary Clinic, and Luke Bergland, DVM for emergency treatment.

Happily the dog's prognosis looks promising, and he is expected to recover after receiving 40 stitches. BayNews 9.com stated Axel's injuries had damaged his sinus cavity, but fortunately there was no damage to his brain, and although the dog was brutally axed by someone, Axel is showing no signs of aggression. (Isn't that just like a forgiving dog?)
UPDATE: No Kill Manatee County is hosting a celebration this week as Axel, the dog who was hit in the head and left wandering with a gaping injury,goes to his foster home.

No Kill Manatee is inviting the community to come out and say so long to Axel. He will leave his friends at Beach Veterinary Clinic on Jan. 9, where he has convalesced since he was found with his injury in November. From there he will make a stop at Lucky Dog Restaurant where owners and friends put together a Facebook Page for Axel.

Then they will head to Manatee County Animal Services, 305 25th St. W., Palmetto, where Axel will meet his new foster mom, trainer Trisha Robinson of Dawg Phonics. Axel will also will meet his fans and be reunited with Animal Services officer Steve Bell, who rescued him and took him straight to Beach Vet.

    Indeed people who abuse animals in such a manner are dangerous and cruel. If they will abuse an animal, imagine what they could do to a human.

    Abuse animals and you cannot be trusted to be around any innocents or those who are helpless. The people who do these types of things are usually the biggest cry babies in the world if anything hurts them, even if it's just a hangnail!

    Honestly,I only looked at the above photo and have read none of the comments yet. I cannot understand this. How someone could do something like that?¿? Well,I'm a Christian but the person that did this should be strung by their testicles or better yet let the punishment fit the crime (this can apply to male or female). The sentence should include taking a machete to the abuser(s) and do to him what he did to the dog!! Then wrap a piece of filet around his testiculars and tell the dog "supper time" !!!!

    It has been proven over, and over, and over that those who abuse animals usually abuse humans later in life. Lock them up for life when convicted of abusing animals and you may have stopped a serial killer.

    I'll rave it because I agree with the sentiment, but strictly speaking I can think of a few worse people (paedophiles spring to mind).

    That said, I think the penalties for animal abuse should be massively increased. Something akin to 10 years min 5 for animal abuse. I'd also have them all undergo a psych eval and (potentially) put onto a police / mental health watchlist. I'd even consider removing their right to own a gun.

    Once a suspected felon has been convicted, that gun right just went flying out the door anyway. You were on the right track, however.

    And that's why there isn't enough help for animals in the world. People treat animals as if they are lower than humans when humans are the ones who cause the most damage and heartache in the world. Hence why this dog was abused.

    There was someone else watching that creep, and HE has ways of repayment that the evil-doer will recognize as retribution even as it's occurring.
    I have first-hand experience in this. As a boy, I made a blowgun and was walking around on a pile of boards from a house that was torn down when I spied a little, green lizard doing the same. I aimed and blew, pinning his right, rear leg to a board. Happy at my precision, I stepped over and pulled the dart out. The lizard ran away, and as I turned around I stepped on a board, it flipped up and a nail that was in it stuck in MY right, rear leg in the same, exact spot.
    So, whenever you think 'who will know?', just realize...'TWO will know'.
