I went to a friend's house the other day and his neighbors have a Beagle that they treat very bad. He lives in the garden and is chained up all day. He barks a lot and when it's too much for the owner she just ties a rope around his mouth and leaves him like that. They never take him for a walk or even unchain him. My friend already spoke to the owners but they are not willing to give him up "because they paid for him". My friend is not willing to make a denuncia for the sake of good neighborly relations and I am going to leave the country for a while so I cannot do it either. Still, I cannot stop thinking about the poor guy so I was wondering what else I can do. Ideas anyone?
