The Cries Of A Chained Pit Bull Made This Hero Take The Law Into His Own Hands.

Freedom is a basic human right. To be able to decide where we live, work, and play are an essence of our existence on this place we call earth. Imagine one day being told you can no longer go as you please, restricting your every move? Naturally, we would fight back, demanding for our liberty.

Yet, humanity seems to think it is completely natural to restrain and cage animals. We reason that it is for our safety and their well-being. In reality, it is a belief that these creatures are nothing more than an accessory to entertain and work for us. Good thing, not everyone feels the same way.

Steffen Baldwin is an animal advocate and dog trainer. He jumped to the rescue of a chained pit bull, when it was reported.

The canine was neither an orphan nor a street dog but rather a domesticated dog. Therefore, when the neighbours suspected neglect, they informed Steffen who is also the founder of Animal Cruelty Task (ACT) Force in Ohio.

It seemed that no one but Steffen understood Tank's violent behaviour was the result of being tied to a chain 24 hours a day, everyday.

Tank had pent up energy, stress, and anxiety. All this contributed to his aggressive actions.
