This case of animal cruelty has been named the worst ever happened.
The dog, named Kathleen, was discovered with jaws wrapped with tape. She was wound so tight that it resulted in deep wounds on the animal’s face.
But Caitlin survived. In addition, the whole world knew her story, and I rose to her defense.
Lawyer Ted Corvey reported that the person who had inflicted the dog such violence, will receive the most severe punishment.

The story of 15-month-old Caitlin has become known worldwide after the badly injured dog was found on the porch of her previous owner in North Charleston, United States.
The previous owner sold her 41-year-old man for $ 10. The dog lived with a new owner in just a few days, after which he struck her a terrible injury, almost deprived the unfortunate animal life.
By some miracle she managed to escape and return to the house of the previous owner, on the porch where her body was found. At the time of the discovery of the mouth of a dog was fixed within 36-48 hours, causing the appearance of deep wounds.
The tape was wrapped so tightly that the blood flow to her tongue stopped.
“This is the most serious case of animal cruelty that I have seen throughout my career,” said Aldwin Roman, Director of public relations of the organization for the protection of animals of Charleston, when Caitlin was first brought there.
Caitlin felt so much pain that I couldn’t eat or drink. First, center staff was not sure that she survives, having such serious damage, as a huge number of dead nerves could lead to serious complications. To save the mouth and tongue, Caitlin had to carry out several operations.
Fortunately for Caitlin, all ended well, and today she feels great. She even became a celebrity after the magazine “People Magazine” recognized it as the story of salvation the most beloved in 2015.
The scars of tape still visible, but fortunately, she no longer feels pain. Loving family took her to his house, and now Caitlin has everything for a long and happy life.
But the story does not end there!
For two long years, attorney Ted Corvey fought for justice for Kathleen. He was sure that the man who caused her so much suffering, will receive the maximum possible punishment for cruelty to animals.
In March 2017, he finally succeeded. 41-year-old man was sentenced to 5 years imprisonment which he will serve his sentence concurrently with a 15-year detention received for the Commission of another crime.
“I think it says that… we will not let this happen anymore,” says Aldwin novel in an interview, “Post and Courier” and continues:
“We’re going to do everything possible within the law to stop this outrage. We plan to go beyond and to change our laws, tightening them”.
I think it is absolutely right that anyone who would expose animal abuse, will get a stiff sentence!
