LOS ANGELES, Ca. — An animal shelter is asking for an investigation after a pit bull died from alleged physical and sexual abuse two weeks after its adoption.

KTLA reports that the injured 5-year-old Cargo was dumped in front of a home, and residents reported seeing two men drop it off.

Dianty Marquez, of Ghetto Rescue Foundation, said the dog was clearly suffering when she arrived to help.

The article goes on to state the following:

After the dog was taken to an emergency veterinarian, they learned there was trauma in her vaginal area.

“She passed because she had some type of blunt force trauma and it caused her aorta to rupture,” according to Marquez.

Cargo had a microchip, and the rescue learned she was adopted during a free adoption event at Orange County Animal Care about two weeks prior. The number and address given at the time of the adoption are no longer current.
