Tongueless Pit Bull Teaches Resiliency And Forgiveness

By Akela Talamasca for

The longer I live, the more amazed I become by both the cruelty of humans and the resiliency of animals. This is a story that relates both in equal measure.

Meet Rico, a pit bull who was raised and trained by a man who wanted him to be a fighter, a desire commonly seen among the morally bankrupt as a sort of depraved status symbol. This man would force Rico to go for long runs with heavy chains wrapped around his neck. However, one day Rico’s endurance gave out and he collapsed to the ground in the middle of a public beach in Mexico, exhausted and unable to continue.

Furious, the man began shouting at Rico to continue his run, but could not force compliance this last time. In a fit of rage, this person took a knife to Rico, cut out his tongue in full view of onlookers, and threw it into the ocean. Fortunately, the police were called immediately, and veterinarian Dr. Joaquin Villasenor was rushed to the scene.
