Recently, Houston, Texas experienced a high level of rainfall as a result of tropical storm Harvey which eventually led to flooding in the region. As a result of the flooding, five people died, many are injured and several thousand have been displaced. But when people run for their life, most of them did not take their pet animal along with them, as you can rightly see from these pictures; dogs were left behind to take care of themselves in what appears to be the worst flood occurrence in the history of Houston.
Despite being warned on several occasions by Texan officials not to leave their livestock as well as pets in the flood, a dog was found holding a road barrier while the river try to carry it away, and some other dogs have been seen around trees and telephone poles where they are being chained in the area flooded by rainfall.
Chief Stephen Carlisle who stays in the Roman Forest about 40 miles north of Houston said, “I will definitely question everyone who chained their dog in this cold weather.” “Dogs are also part of your family.” We sympathize with people and pet currently affected by the flooding in Texas. (h/t)
