A dog chained behind a Detroit Walmart store chewed off part of its foot in an escape attempt.
She suspects the animal chewed off her left back paw after it became entangled and grew tighter.
“It was really cold out,” Wittner said. “She was stuck in one position. Imagine your cold feet are stuck to the ground and imagine something stuck around it.”
Wittner helped rescue the dog Sunday afternoon, and the animal had her leg amputated.
Surveillance video at Walmart showed two men who apparently abandoned the dog Sunday and then drove away.
Wittner said the dog needs more medical care but should recover.
