Pit Bull Terrier Recovers, 2 Men Arrested for Animal Cruelty, Slashing His Throat

| by Phyllis M Daugherty

An adorable, bright-eyed Pit Bull Terrier, named Mc Fly, is recovering at the Washington Humane Society after two men savagely “brutalized” him by allegedly forcing him to fight and then slashing his throat--which would likely indicate punishment for poor performance. (Mc Fly definitely does not look like a fighter!)

McFly is in the care of the Bull Terrier Rescue of Virginia and is ready to be adopted into a loving home.

Two Washington men, Christopher Wayne Johnson and Mark Donnelly Mosley were both arrested on Dec. 2 and each charged with animal cruelty. One of the men had previous ties with dog fighting, according to WJLA-ABC News.

Humane Society officials sat they learned about McFly in early October, when they received a tip that a dog had been fought on 46th place in Southeast and was injured. When they found McFly, he was in critical condition with severe bite wounds and a cut across his throat that clearly indicated someone had tried to slash it.

Johnson and Mosely, were later tied to the crime and taken into custody. Johnson specifically is being held for violating probation for a previous charge connected to dog fighting. Mosely is out on bail. Both Johnson and Mosley are scheduled to appear in court again on Dec. 10.

"What McFly was subjected to and endured was horrific, yet he was determined to survive," WHS Senior Officer Dan D'Eramo said in a statement.
