In a horrendous case of animal cruelty, an Ohio man set a plastic crate on fire in a public park with a 3-month-old puppy inside.

Mercifully, the puppy survived, but not before sustaining severe burns to her face, back, and paws.

The puppy, named Korra by her vet rescue team, was picked up by the Columbus Division of Fire crews on Oct. 11 and rushed to Diley Hill Animal Emergency Center in Canal Winchester for urgent treatment.

“Firefighters responded to the park just after noon and found a small area of melted plastic on fire underneath a tree,” the fire division posted on Facebook.

“As firefighters were extinguishing the fire, they observed a small yellow/blond puppy with white feet, and a white flea collar, running in the area.”

As the crew noticed that the puppy was in black plastic that was melting, they immediately joined the dots and realized she had been inside the crate.

Diley Hill veterinary assistant Katherine Thrush admitted to WBNS-10TV that her first reaction upon receiving Korra for treatment was confusion.

“I don’t ever understand how someone could do that to a helpless animal,” she said.

“She has these dark brown eyes just like Bella, my first rescue,” Thrush continued, adding that she knew Korra would become her fourth rescue dog.

“My husband and I weren’t looking for another dog, but she needed us more than we needed her.”

With the love and consistent care of her adoptive home environment, Korra’s health naturally improved really quickly.

“Her nose is completely healed, and her paw pads are completely healed as well,” Thrush explained in an update. “She doesn’t act like anything ever happened to her.”
